The Vant group is excited to announce that Bill Massie has joined the firm. He brings a wealth of experience in many facets of investment banking.
Bill has worked with entrepreneurs and high-growth companies for over 20 years. His experience ranges from venture capital raises to IPOs. He is highly skilled at sourcing early to intermediate stage equity and debt capital, structuring and placing mezzanine debt and selling privately-held companies.
Bill owned a Broker-Dealer firm for 15 years which specialized in private placements for high-growth entrepreneurs. His understanding of the needs and opportunities of these businesses will be invaluable to The Vant Group as we expand our investment banking operations.
2018 looks to be a significant year for The Vant Group. We have several large projects underway which will require significant capital raise expertise with market rollup opportunities for our clients as well as value creation for our investors. Here are a few examples:
- The Vant Group (TVG)is partnering with a firm to exploit opportunities in the cannabis business in Colorado and several other states this next year. Our efforts will include providing roll-up capital to consolidate and integrate disparate business operations, expand dispensary and production facilities, and develop new pharmaceutical products. We believe that there is enormous profit potential as the cannabis industry grows and becomes more sophisticated. The Vant Group intends to play a leading role in providing financing, advisory, and investment banking services to this space;
- TVG will spearhead a real estate development project in Broken Bow Oklahoma designed to meet the increasing demand of vacationers traveling to the area. Resort cabin rentals, purchases, and a corporate conference center will be among the offerings;
- TVG, along with one of our partners, has engaged with an exceptional operating group to purchase and grow a well-known local restaurant chain with attending real estate assets in Uptown.
This sampling of 2018 projects is part of the exciting times at The Vant Group. We are looking forward to working with our investment banking clients and capital sources as we seek to add value and make money for our partners.
