    Vested for Growth (VFG) provides risk-tolerant capital, business education, and CEO peer learning opportunities to help owners of small to medium-sized New Hampshire businesses increase profits and create higher-quality jobs. VFG provides subordinated debt and royalty financing when both banks and equity sources are unable to provide enough capital for the needs of the business. Typical prospects have $1 million to $20 million in annual sales, 10 to 200 employees, and gross profit margins of 20% or higher. VFG typically invests between $100,000 to $500,000 per portfolio company.
