Operational Empathy

We are not just investors: we are founders, engineers and executives, and each one of us has operating experience building companies in the industrial technology sector.

We use Operational Empathy to describe our approach to partnering with companies: patient, deeply informed, collaborative and energetic. We are able to attract world-class managers to work with us through our operational- rather than financial- approach to building businesses.

Delivering Transformation

We deliver transformative change in businesses by working closely with management throughout the investment lifecycle: 

  • Building knowledge involves reviewing market position, products, supply and distribution networks, and operating processes.  
  • Building vision involves translating the strengths and weaknesses in the business into a clear set of opportunity and strategies for long-term growth.
  • Building leadership involves aligning leadership with strategy by establishing clear goals, culture, coaching, and business and equity incentives.
  • Building execution involves closing operational gaps, driving business pace, investing in growth, and building scale through operational and M&A activities.
