We believe there is value added to financial returns by addressing a multitude of social concerns through all stages of the investment process. We believe there are compelling investment opportunities in a range of markets underserved by the financing community. Through investing in these companies, we create quality employment opportunities, especially for people with low to moderate incomes, promote progressive management practices, support socially beneficial products and services, enrich distressed communities, and foster environment sustainability.
We invest in innovative companies exhibiting rapid growth, dynamic transformation or emergence. We build partnerships with passionate entrepreneurs and quality management teams with relevant experience, visionary leadership and deep commitment. These management teams develop business models to generate rapid growth based upon compelling market opportunities with realistic projections, as well as appropriate enterprise valuation and pragmatic exit plans. Our portfolio companies secure competitive advantages through proprietary technology, intellectual property and distributions systems, while providing broad reaching social benefits.
We manage balanced equity portfolios, diversified by geography, industry, stage of business development and social benefits. Often staged through multiple financing, target portfolio company investments will generally range from $250,000 to $1 million.
