They know that fast-growing businesses are different. They face a unique set of challenges and opportunities. Many are at an inflection point in their development, looking for a patient and strategic partner to help them
transform from an ascending star into an enduring market leader.
Serving as a steady and strategic co-pilot, they help the portfolio companies manage and accelerate their growth by seizing new opportunities, mitigating risks, and preparing to scale their business models.
The firm was founded as a family office for a single entrepreneur who enlisted the team to help fellow entrepreneurs build great companies and enable others to invest in innovation and growth. Today, they remain true to the original mission. We are committed to helping high-quality companies achieve unprecedented, long-term success. And, by doing that, we stay committed to helping the capital partners — more than half of whom are families — achieve their investment objectives.See more
