Flexing the Capacity of
Corporate Research Teams


We help Private Equity and corporate teams that do not have large in-house operating partner organizations with every phase of their business requiring particular skills they don't have in their own teams. We'll provide corporate-side insight into due diligence, strategic assessments, or business case development. We also enable our clients by helping their portfolio companies, engaging those executive teams, and engaging in whatever way they need to help them turn their companies around.  


We know you have the finest financial minds in the industry. What we bring to your team is a wealth of IT, Sales/Marketing, and Operations experience to see things you don't want to miss.  We have led dozens of due diligence initiatives and know-how to not only find the truth behind the numbers but offer practical assessments and recommendations.

Sometimes you just need a small shift in direction, a different approach, some coaching or a fresh set of experienced eyes. Our team includes former CSO and CMOs with a history of results. Most importantly, we love to teach and leave teams stronger than before.
