We believe failure rate risk in early stage growth companies is overstated if filtered for a number of quantitative and qualitative variables. There are emerging growth companies well beyond idea and product phase and at an inflection point where cheaper cost of labor in the Midwest and flyover states, and strategic input and small amounts of capital, can significantly improve a company's future growth. Whether it's building out a team, finding access to capital, or evaluating new business models, companies come to us because they know we can reduce risk and accelerate growth.
