Sequential Financing

We prepare our portfolio companies for each investment stage by engaging the right co-investors, identifying sequential investors, and aligning investment time horizons. Identifying “Step Change” opportunities – scale financing, partnerships, M&A – is a critical criteria of our selection process and ongoing strategic reviews.
