Our investment philosophy is centered on the entrepreneurs with whom we partner. We thrive on collaborating with entrepreneurs to grow their businesses; and enjoy using their expertise to develop value-building opportunities. We take an active, “hands-on” approach and work with management to establish financial and operating objectives, assist in the definition of business and product strategies, recruit and mentor senior management and initiate add-on acquisitions.
