Groove does the heavy lifting of finding great deals, conducting due diligence, and negotiating investment terms, so you don’t have to. Approved deals are then shared via the Groove Investment Group platform, allowing you to co-invest along the side of Groove’s Fund. Our online platform allows you to evaluate the startups, when convenient, no matter where you are. Members are encouraged to view each deal, share their industry expertise, ask questions, and invest when you see something you like.
