    Greenough Group CLIENTS

    Meet our clients: The most respected and fastest growing in the Valley.



    Real-word situations. More-than-impressive results

    Lumina Networks

    Lumina Networks, Inc., a leader in open source networking solutions that simplify and automate heterogeneous networks, brought Greenough Group in at the time of Lumina’s spin-out from a large public company.


    Oceanshore Ventures

    Some companies wait until an impending transaction, or until they reach a certain size, to get their financial house in order. Not Oceanshore Ventures. The partners in this early-stage fund recognized that sound financial practices needed to start at the outset. Early on, they brought Greenough Consulting Group on board for its specialized expertise in venture funding.


    500 Startups

    Greenough Group helped 500 Startups with everything from structuring the fund to leasing the office space.



    Folloze, Inc. is a multinational, venture-backed start-up headquartered in the Bay Area. Quickly becoming a leader in the B2B marketing SaaS space, Folloze faced a myriad of challenges brought on by rapid transatlantic expansion.



    For Greenough Group, the most complex challenges are often the most enjoyable. GCG was brought into Starvox, a voice and data communications provider, at a pivotal time for the company. Newly-appointed CEO Tom Rowley was tasked with raising capital through a reverse merger into a public shell, putting Starvox in a position to acquire other companies.


    Gemini Technologies

    Gemini Mobile Technologies, Inc., a mobile messaging and “Big Data” leader, has relied on Greenough Group’s trusted counsel and hands-on expertise for almost six years as Gemini has developed and evolved its business operations.


    Silicon Valley's most respected venture capital firms and their rapidly growing portfolio companies. That’s who we partner with.

    Greenough Group provides finance, accounting, and human resources services to technology companies, venture capital, and private equity funds. Our flexible, scalable, and cost-effective model gives small and growing organizations access to trusted executives with decades of experience as CEOs, CFOs, HR executives, and Fund Managers.
