Rockbridge is committed to helping our portfolio companies accelerate their growth and build long-term, sustainable value. Our relationship-based investment perspective builds lasting strategic partnerships focused on building the next generation of successful companies.
We partner directly with management teams to develop a vision for growth, determine the capabilities and investment necessary to make it happen, and provide the tools to execute that vision over our investment horizon. In the process, we work closely with all levels of the portfolio company to ensure a comprehensive approach to achieving our growth objectives.
We focus on strategic planning and business process improvements, leveraging our experience across several industries and functional areas. With our unique relationships across the broad Family of Companies, we are quickly able to develop solutions to key challenges facing companies in the Rockbridge Growth Equity portfolio.
We understand that the little things – we call them “inches” – often make all the difference. At Rockbridge, we act as a thought partner with our management teams. We work with our partners to identify the “inches” in their own companies: knowing that these seemingly small details can translate into great execution and ultimately make the difference between a good business and a great business.
