Integrated Direct Investing

Our team of professionals and advisors has extensive experience in managing, advising and educating family offices and investors. We have extensive transactional experience working directly with entrepreneurial business owners and our diverse background of managing complex transactions, many times as a capital partner, gives us a unique perspective on the direct investing opportunity set.

We believe in building and extracting value through disciplined investment strategies, transactional rigor and offer a variety of proprietary monitoring and reporting solutions. We are entrepreneurs ourselves and focused on practical advice gained from operating within multiple generational family offices as trusted confidential advisors. We have developed a unique and disciplined approach maximizing our key expertise in Private Equity, Investment Banking, and operationally focused management consulting.

We are always identifying driven, high-integrity, entrepreneurs in need of capital and strategic support to reach new levels of growth. As business owners first and investors second, our focus goes far beyond generating quick returns. Our unique platform allows us to properly align priorities with the entrepreneur who understands growing a business is a long-term commitment. We’ve successfully made that commitment in healthcare, consumer retail, transportation/logistics, oil & gas, and software among others.

Quality, Transparency, Execution

Our aim is to at once demystify securing equity partners for great operating teams and provide an alternative to traditional funds. We are best suited for companies that are too advanced, or outside of the parameters for VC funds, or not yet mature enough, or ready for, institutional private equity buyouts. Our key innovation, is in our ability to professionalize private companies, develop win-win structures and solutions that activate capital from true equity partners.
