How We Help Build Strong Companies
The Council model combines some of the best and most experienced company builders with top entrepreneurs to build strong companies.
Most investment firms are investor-centric, with investors making many of the key operating decisions. At Council we are operator-centric, relying on the portfolio companies and their boards of directors to make operating decisions rather than having investors set company strategy. It’s our approach to work side by side with our operators, not to run the companies or interfere.
Before making an investment, Council works with company leadership to determine whether our approach can be applied successfully. We use a management and governance assessment process to ensure that we identify gaps Council needs to fill without duplicating skill sets within the company. Following investment, our entire team marshals whatever resources and relationships are needed to optimize the company’s performance.
