Our Approach

 

Empowering Entrepreneurs to Achieve

Each business is different and we invest the time, effort and resources to understand your company and ambitions for it.

We work in partnership with you to drive a growth strategy that will create value throughout your business and focus on the things that really matter.

You also have the opportunity to learn from the experiences of our wide ranging portfolio and we introduce you to the right resources at the right time whether they be money, mentoring or contacts.

 

Building Successful Businesses

Our team can make a real difference for your business with its broad range of operational and strategic skills and expertise combined with a hands-on approach.

We can also help you find the right people to strengthen your team and support your business development activities in order to reach the agreed goals and create a thriving business.

Being an owner managed business ourselves, we understand the daily challenges of operating and growing a successful business and aim to bring a steadying influence through both the ups and downs.

 

Growing with Investment

We have the ability, and more importantly the willingness, to be a long term funding partner and support your business through multiple funding rounds – even when times are tough.

We work with you towards achieving critical value proof points which enable you to raise further funding, if necessary, from third party investors at significantly improved valuations.

In addition to the significant investment we provide, the companies we have invested in have successfully raised over £230m from other equity providers.

With our extensive funding experience and a strong investment track record, we have been successfully involved in over 150 transactions where we continue to go from strength to strength.

 

Turning Risk into Reward by Empowering, Building and Growing

To us risk is opportunity, we embrace it. We focus heavily on the positive aspects of a business opportunity and work closely with entrepreneurs to address challenges and weaknesses.

As a direct result we have an outstanding track record of growing businesses that deliver strategic value at exit, for the benefit of all parties involved.

In the last five years we have achieved 13 exits for value generating an average 6 times return on investment and since 2006 have seen 22 members of management teams we have supported become millionaires.
