As a value-added investor, Advantage Capital Partners provides not only access to capital, but also access to people. The managers at our portfolio companies appreciate the capital we provide as well as the guidance and support that we offer. Our team includes in-house entrepreneurs who work directly with the management at our portfolio companies to plan and implement tactical programs and provide high-level strategic recommendations.
Our assistance ranges from practical advice and general guidance to specific tasks such as executive recruitment, business development, forming or negotiating strategic alliances and joint ventures, and navigating regulatory issues. We offer insights into new markets, and help our companies seek out visionary, yet realistic, opportunities.
We also introduce the portfolio company management to our well-established contacts in the banking, accounting, legal, tax, consulting, public relations and recruiting industries. With our investment professionals’ extensive venture capital, private equity and banking contacts, our introductions can benefit portfolio companies as they raise future rounds of capital, seek to enter the public markets, acquire other businesses or pursue liquidity events.
