One of the most important decisions a company makes is whether and how to raise outside capital from a sophisticated investment partner. HGP begins each capital raise assessment with a strategic review that evaluates the executive team and board’s personal and professional objectives, sources and uses of capital, market potential, and strategic alternatives. If the assessment results in the pursuit of institutional capital, HGP will customize its role to match the circumstances of the identified transaction objective. While HGP has experience across all investor classes, HGP has unmatched expertise in identifying and executing strategic investor transactions. When identifying any investment partner, HGP focuses equally on the strategic fit, cultural fit, valuation, capital invested, and the preferences and rights of the security to design a transaction that optimizes the long-term value potential and alignment of the capital relationship.
