Our process starts with the Lean Canvas which helps us understand where the company stands, what they need and if we're positioned to help them.
In the stage of innovation where we invest, many founders need operational support. We use our channels to help them get their early customers, build their brand and develop their team. Our approach is often "hands-on" during the early stages of our partnership.
We make debt and equity placements and put a lot of focus on making sure it fits our portfolio and the expertise of our deal partners.
