We trust, and we are trustworthy

We operate with a spirit of mutual respect, integrity and truthfulness.

We collaborate

With co-operation, teamwork and encouragement, we are stronger than we could be on our own.

We are open

We create better results by being open to a diverse range of perspectives, ideas and pursuits.

We give back

Our purpose is to lift others, and create greater opportunity and potential for them and their communities.

We make excellence happen

We achieve superior results through planning and accountability.

We keep evolving

Success comes when we challenge the status quo and invest in innovation (plus, it’s more fun that way).

We provide capital investments along with strategic management counsel to profitable businesses with the opportunity for significant growth. Guidance, management support and niche experience required for expansion are included in our partnerships. On average, we are looking to invest $3–5 million in companies that share our values and can back it up with strong financial performance. Our general guidelines are to consider investing in companies with a positive cash flow for at least 2 years, revenue of at least $15 million and an EBITDA of at least $1 million.

We aspire to create a better world by accelerating people’s talents, so they can meet their true potential and, in turn, lift others.
