Our Story

Your Business is Our Business

knows business. 

 And, your business is as important to us as it is to you. It was in the fall of 1997 that our founder first provided professional business services tailored exclusively to the unique business needs of non-profit organizations, start-ups, and small businesses. These particular business forms were grossly underserved and had nowhere to turn for specialized expertise in business formation and structure, compliance and business processing needs. So, providing business solutions for non-profits, start-ups, and small businesses became her inspiration and ignited passion.

At The Agape Group, our mission is to make our clients’ businesses thrive by providing solutions that maximize their potential and success. Our team has a combined total of over 50 years of experience and expertise. We are 100% professionally invested. Because we understand what is uniquely at stake for non-profits, start-ups, and small businesses, we provide innovative solutions that move your business forward and take it to the next level.

Meet the Founder

Daphne Rankin, Founder of The Agape Group

Real leadership is about your presence making others better and being sure that impact remains even in your absence.”

Daphne Rankin, Founder

Just over 27 years ago, Daphne Rankin was approached by two different people who attended the same church as she did, who were business owners, and who happened to be familiar with her business acumen and legal background.

They had been unable to find assistance to help resolve challenges they faced in their businesses. You see, Daphne is that person who seamlessly uses a unique combination of cross-disciplinary business and legal education, experience, and skills to lead non-profits, start-ups, and small businesses through the business formation and structure, compliance, and business processes challenges that they often face.

Having graduated with honors from Howard University and having studied law at Emory University and the University of Memphis, this is a primary part of her signature offering. This allows her to first view business with a wide lens and then be able to narrow, identify, and understand complex issues, take action, and get results.

Daphne’s success is developing strategies and solutions to help her friends resolve and overcome their business’ challenges led her to the discovery of a new passion. And from that experience, THE AGAPE GROUP was formed.

Throughout Daphne’s career, she has managed and consulted with businesses throughout the United States, in Nigeria, and in Sri Lanka and which span a variety of industries including law, home health services, education, religion/faith-based organizations, social services, youth services, and real estate.
