I don’t invest in companies. I invest in people. I look for the most innovative entrepreneurs, the most dedicated, hard-working professionals, and the most focused and visionary individuals out there.
I look for passion, integrity and honesty, for independent thinkers who see beyond the conventional and have the confidence to pave new ground. I look for greatness.
And then I take a look at the business. Is it a product or service that fills a strong and sustainable consumer need? Is it different enough to stand out? How is the business being operated and managed? How are sales and marketing being handled? What is the growth potential? Can I help build this company into the vision? What are the risks? How can we mitigate those?
Mostly, it is entrepreneurs who come to me with the right idea at the right time. They understand the viability of their idea and they are passionate about it. They simply need additional resources to achieve their goals. The real magic happens when we connect with others who share the same values and commitment to building something extraordinary.
Businesses come and go. Relationships endure. And I look for passionate people who will endure. Who will get up after falling and try again.
Maybe you have a unique venture you’d like me to look at. Or maybe you’d like to take a closer look at me. If so, maybe we should meet. Who knows, it could be the start of something great.
