We combine promising intellectual capital, hands-on management, and a structured maturation process to create a proprietary pipeline of investable companies.
Problems We Solve
Experienced talent is a greater constraint for early-phase growth companies than capital. It takes more than an interesting idea or strong product to successfully scale and achieve exit objectives. It takes the right combination of specialized expertise, process, relationships, and investment to create a valuable business from the intellectual property.
What We Do
The Combine partners with enterprise organizations and technical founders to convert their promising intellectual property into viable, scalable businesses with a strict focus on achieving aggressive IRR and multiple targets. We provide direct leadership and a structured maturation process to create a proprietary pipeline of investment-grade growth companies.
How We Do It
The Combine takes a hands-on executive role and directly runs each company during the formative stages to minimize execution risk. We take the fledgling company from seed capital and approach validation through product commercialization, market launch, customer acquisition, & long-term scale with the necessary growth capital & stand-alone management to maximize investor returns.
Conduct due diligence on selected concept for product & market viability, competitive landscape, business planning, initial valuation and investment decision support.
Commercialize initial product and provide interim executive management to build business infrastructure for initial go-to-market.
Facilitate market entry, development of sales pipeline, and initial pilot customer acquisition.
Execute pilot customer engagements and build repeatable scale of solution delivery beyond initial customer milestones.
