We work closely with the management teams of our portfolio companies to accelerate growth, primarily through targeted investments in sales and marketing, in addition to ongoing product development and operational initiatives.
Staley Capital’s team of investment professionals and advisors have extensive experience investing in and operating both B2B technology and consumer-focused businesses, as well as a deep understanding of consumer trends and the tools enterprises need to serve their customers better. We only invest in companies in which our team’s industry expertise, board-level participation, network of connections, and advisors’ experience can add significant value.
We typically invest $5-20 million of equity in each deal, which are predominantly minority growth equity investments. We have also made and will consider majority recapitalizations and growth buyouts, leveraging additional capital from our network.
We seek to invest at a critical inflection point in a company’s lifecycle, where significant investment has already been made to build the product and acquire initial customers, but has left key areas such as sales and marketing underfunded. We help companies institutionalize their sales and marketing functions in order to efficiently scale and accelerate growth.
Within the broader B2B technology space, we are particularly experienced with “B2B2C” business models where a B2B solution facilitates an improved or enhanced consumer experience.
