TFG Logo


TFG provides strategic advisory services to qualified technologists and technology companies to help them get to the next level. TFG’s focus is on assisting with the commercialization of technology products or services and with the preparation of raising funds. TFG charges no fees for its services and takes no ownership interest in client companies. TFG’s charter is to help technology companies start, grow, and thrive.

TFG is committed to helping develop qualified technology-based companies. Advising services are offered at no cost to clients, which is made possible through funding provided by the SBA and other private entities. TFG is able to work with a set number of clients at any one time, and therefore requires an application to be accepted. Clients are accepted on a three-month basis initially with the possibility of renewal based on client’s commitment to the strategic direction as outlined by TFG Advisors.
