INVESTMENT OPTIMIZATION, EFFICIENCY, AND DIVERSIFICATION

 

PHILOSOPHY

INVESTMENT OPTIMIZATION, EFFICIENCY, AND DIVERSIFICATION

For individual investors, lack of a sophisticated investment process and having direct access to proprietary deals limits their ability to effectively participate in Los Angeles’ highly lucrative, early-stage technology investment ecosystem.  Their individual investments are limited to the deals they have access to, the knowledge of their own investment advisors and business managers, their own set of support resources, and the total amount of money they are willing to invest.
Being deeply rooted in Los Angeles’ tech ecosystem, Coastal Grove Partners allows investors seeking ways to improve their technology investment activities to benefit from the unique experiences and relationships of our firm’s managers, advisors, and investment partners, providing investors with all the resources to increase the likelihood of successful investments.

Retail Innovation and eCommerce
IoT (Internet of Things)
FinTech (Financial Technologies)
Consumer/Social/Mobile

Gaming, Media, and Entertainment Technologies
