2. Do you invest
in leveraged buyouts or similar special situations?
3. Does my company have to go public in order for it to fit
your investment strategy?
1. Do you invest
in start up or seed stage opportunities?
No. We typically seek to exit an investment within three to
five years of the initial investment. Though an initial public offering is
a potential exit vehicle, we often target situations where a successful exit
may take the form of a merger or acquisition by a strategic partner or a
recapitalization of the company by its original founders.
I give up management control?
No. We usually make minority investments. Our objective is
to back strong managers and entrepreneurs.
5. Do you
sign Confidentiality or Non-Disclosure Agreements?
Although we approach confidentiality with sensitivity, we do
not sign Confidentiality or Non-Disclosure Agreements.
you co-invest with other investors?
Yes. We think co-investing or syndicating with other investors
is smart. It can often bring added resources and perspectives to our portfolio
7. Do you require a detailed business plan?
To begin a dialog, we prefer to see an executive summary of
up to five pages of your business plan. If there is mutual interest, we will
subsequently discuss your complete business plan with you in detail as part
of our evaluation process.
