We are a specialist company working to help SME businesses achieve the next Value Step, that moment when a step change in shareholder value is created and realised. This may be: securing a major contract; implementing a succession plan; completing a fundraising, sale or acquisition.     A small team of proven and experienced business leaders, we are prepared to invest our time and capital to back our brains, courage and leadership to deliver our client’s desired outcomes. We judge the degree of intervention to suit the situation…enough to make the difference.     Working with a group of associates, we offer a complete portfolio of skills and capabilities to suit the situation including corporate finance and accounting; communications; governance and company administration.

The Value Step Process
Commercial
Commercially, we are neither typical £/day consultants nor a traditional Private Equity house. We offer two approaches: (i) advisory services on a success-based leveraged fee, or (ii) full investment partnership On each of these, our approach is similar.  We put our own skin in the game and take a real share of risk and reward to align ourselves with our client’s successful outcome.
