Value Creation Strategy

We invest behind management teams to build and grow great companies. Though each business and market is unique, we use our significant expertise to help companies realize value.

Investment in Sales, Products, Services, Talent

Combining great products and services with a best-in-class commercial organization can meaningfully accelerate revenue growth.  We encourage heavy investment behind sales, marketing, and product & service development and innovation – often intentionally reducing profitability in the early years of an investment – to support long term growth.

Product, Service, and Market Adjacencies

Taking existing products and services to new end-markets and geographies, or deepening relationships with existing customers by adding on new products and services, can help a business grow strategically.  We work with our management teams to help prioritize ways to leverage existing customer relationships and core competencies into strategic adjacency expansion.

Building For The Future

Robust infrastructure is a vital facilitator of long-term growth.  We help our management teams invest in systems, people, and process infrastructure with an eye towards the future, ensuring there are no internal barriers to rapidly scaling the company.

Opening Doors

We have deep networks in our sectors. These relationships can yield potential customers, advisors, employees, or board members – and we work with our management teams to determine the best ways to bring these resources to bear.

Acquisitive Growth

Market-leading companies with high-quality management teams can be strong platforms for acquisitive growth. In addition to providing capital, we offer sourcing, structuring, execution, and integration expertise to help our management teams pursue both “buy-and-build” consolidation strategies, and large transformative strategic combinations.
