We have a long-term view of a company’s performance. Our general investment horizon is five to seven years, sometimes longer. We drive our investment returns by helping our partners grow, not by financial engineering or utilizing excessive amounts of debt to fund acquisitions. We add value, not just capital. Our collaborative approach, consumer expertise, proprietary tools, and extensive relationships help our partners build high-growth, best in class brands.
We have a passion for building brands that enhance people’s lives via investments in innovative, leading consumer-facing companies.
We make minority and majority investments, and work effectively with entrepreneurs to create a transaction structure that meets their needs.
Integrity is at the soul of our culture. We regard fairness, commitment, follow-through, and confidentiality as keys to success.
We're very entrepreneur-friendly. We go to work on behalf of our partners. We view our primary job as doing whatever we can to help our partners succeed, not dictating or mandating decisions.
