Including Strategic Investors In the Mix

Many large companies (in high tech as well as other industries) have investment funds and full time staff employed to identify and evaluate investment opportunities in related products and technologies. We actively maintain relations with many of these people.

Strategic investors are often a prized investment source because they can bring tremendous credibility to your firm during critical growth phases. If strategic investors are part of the mix, we bring high value by having the right contacts and the capabilities and experience required to maximize your company’s appeal to these investors.

Having a strategic investor at the table often has valuable side benefits. For instance, interest from a strategic investor often drives higher interest from financial investors. Also, introducing your company to potential strategic investors frequently stimulates additional partnering discussions. So even if you don’t end up with a new investor, you might very well end up with a new high value partnership!
