Our venture capital and growth capital investing philosophy is guided by our Core Company Investment Strategy, which accelerates the growth of a company through strategic consolidation within an industry. It is Thematic based investing targeting specific sectors of opportunity augmented by a “buy-and-build” strategy supporting our initial entrepreneurial company. By following a targeted merger and acquisitions plan, a core portfolio company can quickly increase its scale and broaden the scope of its product and service offerings. The result is a company that replicates a proven business model around an existing core platform to build a large, high-growth enterprise.
Within the past twenty years, core companies in our portfolio have completed over 200 strategic acquisitions.
One of our significant Boston venture capital investments was in the pharmaceutical services company PAREXEL International. Our initial venture capital investment in PAREXEL helped them as a startup to expand and has now completed 42 acquisitions to date with our continuing support.
The growth and success of our portfolio companies have, in turn, allowed us to grow and expand our capital base over the years to over $700 million. As our firm has grown, we have developed a worldwide network of relationships. Investors from over a dozen countries have entrusted us to manage capital on their behalf.
