ASSESS VALUE AND EXIT OPPORTUNITY
During our valuation and exit assessment, we analyze acquirers’ needs, demands and willingness to pay. Each portfolio company has already benefited from insights to the problems major strategics wish to solve. We will also determine potential and optimal exit points. This assessment is supported by more than 30 years of close relationships with strategics.
PROTECT 'KING' SOLUTION
At this point, one idea is declared ‘king’ as it has emerged through not only a rigorous appraisal of the market, but also an understanding of the project’s costs, timeline and risks. Intellectual property for this solution is carefully protected as we work to develop additional competitive advantages and barriers to entry.
NURTURE THROUGH SCROLL
Our Scroll examines a portfolio company’s critical risk factors and defines each development milestone, categorized by functional area. These milestones are tied into the company’s operations and the schedule of funding rounds, anticipated exit values and projected IRR of each investment. In this Nurture step, risk is quantified and actively reduced, while the company’s value increases when each milestone is met.
