Growth Audits


  • Are you interested in a deal, but just not sure the growth will continue?   I use proprietary demand analytic techniques to distinguish pull vs. push growth, forecast the target's likelihood of reaching desired exit revenues on your preferred timeline, and what it will take to get there.
  • New to the food and beverage space?   I continually study emerging trends in all major value-added food and beverage categories and have evaluated targets in all the high investment categories. I bring unmatched contextual understanding to better evaluate your investment risk.

Precise. Quick. Actionable.

Turn-Around Strategies


  • Is one of your current investments not growing the way you had intended?   I can help analyze what happened and what can reasonably be done to inject growth back into the business.
  • Do you want third party evaluation of a management team's turn-around plan?  I will review the plan and relevant data before providing quick feedback on how to improve it prior to moving forward. My expertise is looking at any and all contextual factors affecting demand that operators may easily overlook.

Solution-oriented. Realistic. Fast.

Optimizing Your Picking


  • Do you want to improve your chances of a faster, larger exit?   I help investment firms develop more demand-centric IP to enhance their odds of picking a fast growing winner. For the ambitious, there is now enough early stage data to model factors predicting growth and likelihood of attaining scale. But you need to add in the right consumer metadata to unlock the findings. Quantitative investing has come to the private markets.

Fewer Sour Deals. Higher Exits. Happier Investors.
