With all the talk about proprietary deal flow in our industry, you’d think that intermediaries didn’t exist. Our team has been sourcing deals for almost three decades. We appreciate the role you play in discovering cool companies, getting them ready for a sale and introducing them to us. Please keep doing that! Here is our promise: we are a fast “No” and a committed “Yes”; we show up prepared for meetings and keep our iPhones in our pockets; we don’t kick tires just to stick around in a process; and we try to make you look good along the way. And here is an invitation: we invest in some pretty great companies that you should get to know. We are happy to introduce you to our portfolio and we hope you can make time to visit when you are in Chicago.
