Are the markets your companies operate in being disrupted?  
 

Are there new business models or technology or market dynamics that are created downward pressure on the products/services or growth of the company?  
 

This is something that we have experienced for most of our professional careers.  We have worked in new and disrupted markets and have created billion-dollar markets in the process.  We revel in working in these types of markets assisting in both organic and acquisitive types of opportunities.  
 

Not only do we work with investors, we have been active investors in private companies and limited partners in institutional funds so we have a deep understand of the approach required to successfully assist institutional investors.  
 

And, if we’re assisting portfolio companies in growing their business, it’s equally important to understand how to integrate into the existing company - as former leaders of companies – early stage, mid size as well as operating divisions of larger companies, we understand how to approach these team dynamics.
