Why our investment process is different

You’ve probably experienced investment proposals and business partners that don’t meet your expectations. We’ve created an investment process that ensures you get the valuation, capital and partner you need and deserve. Our Business Ownership PlatformSM ensures we only build and invest in businesses when we have mutually aligned long-term goals. It also ensures our respective roles in achieving those goals are crystal clear.

When investing capital, GroundSwell “de-risks” our relationship with you before we invest with our rigorous yet efficient onboarding process.

We also play an integral part of your long-term team after our investment.

Assess

In less than 30 minutes our licensed surveys clearly diagnose exactly where your company is today and what needs to be done to maximize your valuation.

Offer

Our offer will include a current valuation of your firm as well as key terms and closing conditions as well as clearly defined roles and responsibilities for both of us going forward.

Valuation Bridge PlanSM

If GroundSwell doesn’t meet the valuation you want, we’ll provide a clear path and partnership to get you the valuation/price you deserve. Then we’ll commit to invest at your desired valuation when you get there.

“GroundSwell was a better long-term partner than I could have ever imagined. We worked together in the trenches to an incredibly successful exit versus them just telling me what do at board meetings.”
