Focus & Mission

For New Managers

If you are a brand new fund manager looking to launch a fund there can still be a great partnership opportunity. Since your General Partnership is brand new, and your enterprise value is essentially $0.00, there will be no acquisition/exchange of money upon signing. We will come in on the ground floor and provide consulting & other services in exchange for a minority revenue/profit share of your General Partnership. This costs you no money up front. We only make money when you do.

For Seasoned Managers

If you are a seasoned manager that is looking to…
…then let’s have a conversation about a partnership. Your General Partnership will have an associated enterprise value based on the revenues that you’ve generated. Most General Partnerships Stakes are fairly difficult to sell, but we are here to help.
