In today’s fast-moving and competitive world, business owners are often overwhelmed. Competitors are constantly evolving and developing new products and ideas. Customers are demanding faster, better, and cheaper. And technology is impacting nearly every aspect of business and life.
Owners of fast-growing, lower-middle market businesses are constantly assessing the opportunity to grow versus the capital and resources required to generate that growth. Many business owners attempt to bootstrap capital needs and rely on friends and family for advice. Increasingly, business owners who are looking to accelerate growth and consider their business as a lifetime asset instead of simply something they “sell” are looking for financing partners who can provide sophisticated resources, guidance, and capital. In these situations, choosing a proper “growth partner” is the single most important decision these business owners can make.
