|Our team is committed to assisting you in developing your company and shaping its ultimate success. The value we bring as investors stems from over 30 years of experience with companies that have faced challenges similar to yours, and from the extensive network of industry contacts, colleagues and advisors we've developed over the course of three decades of principled investing.
We work closely with our portfolio companies to shape strategy and policy while providing thoughtful governance and oversight-but in the end our investment philosophy may be most clearly distinguished from other investors by the fact that we believe it's ultimately up to you to build and manage your growing company.
We'll provide every resource to you and your team that we have available, but we expect you and your team to establish the company's direction, hire the best employees possible and implement your business plan successfully.
Of course, when you need us to provide coaching, mentoring or to help develop best practices or critical relationships, we'll be there. But we aren't going to pretend to be able to run your company from our desks. Simply put, we believe in the "nose in, fingers out" approach because it's what our experience has shown to create the healthiest, most successful companies with the greatest value over the long term.
