We invest in one company at a time with the goal of building businesses that we could own forever.
We believe a cohesive team will produce exponentially greater results than that of individuals working independently. The partnership we form with our people, managers and leaders creates a contagious culture for teamwork and desire to collectively enhance value within our companies. Because we engage so closely with our teams, we take an active role in inspiring the team, recruiting exceptional talent and driving entrepreneurial behaviors. This combination of actions, ideas and energy fosters a powerful 'success culture' where our companies endeavor to challenge conventional wisdom and be bold.
One of the yardsticks we use to measure our own success is whether our companies are great places to work. Exceptional cultures and high quality work environments do not develop overnight and can be especially fragile during a company's expansive growth. That's why we work extremely hard with our team to make long term decisions that support culture and a strong sense of community. In particular, we are believers in enabling growth/learning opportunities, providing competitive compensation including equity and other incentives to reward long term value creation, and offering solid benefits for all employees. If we are able to inspire companies with great people, we believe other components of success will fall into place.
