Investments come in many forms: people, money, energy and time. While all are important, our first priority is always people. We seek opportunities to invest in and build business relationships with people who share our values and perspectives on free enterprise.
We don’t just lend money; we partner with people and work with them to attain their goals and objectives through business. While we often invest financial resources, we also provide independent insights, governance, and management consulting rooted in decades of experience.
Our investment partners are a diverse group, yet they all share a common vision for the opportunities of small business. We talk about “the three C’s”:
Character – personal and business values, culture, and beliefs
Capability – industry knowledge, technical ability, and experience in small business
Commitment – personal passion and willingness to invest money, energy and time
We prefer meeting our potential partners, hosting an open exchange of background information, and getting to know each other long before we actually review “the numbers." We believe no amount of legal paperwork will ever mitigate a poor business relationship.
While we have partnered with companies during the start-up phase, our lending experience and expertise is focused on mezzanine financing. We look for entrepreneurs and companies with a proven business model requiring an infusion of intellectual and financial capital to fuel growth and expansion. Those facing barriers preventing activities such as: corporate acquisitions, product development, geographical or facility expansion or new equipment purchases can benefit from our expertise and understanding of business. We can craft a creative financing package utilizing interest, participation, and equity that is affordable and matches the needs of the growing organization.
Our unique Operating Partnership (OP) ProgramTM is a true example of partnering to reach an entrepreneur’s goals and objectives. It is a marriage of talents between you and our team to build a great company. This is where we excel!
We view ourselves as “business catalysts” unlocking the potential of people and companies. Our Operating Partnership Program was developed to match the demonstrated skills of an operations-oriented individual with the proven skills and track record of Cybeck Capital Partners. It is designed to provide and facilitate a mutual benefit where the operations partner can own and operate the business, yet have access to small business management experience and the additional funding sources we offer.
This time-tested program is employed in numerous industries and has even been demonstrated and taught to other financing entities. If you recognize the value and synergy that comes from working with partners possessing complimentary skills, this opportunity will interest you. Whether you are operating a company or searching for an acquisition opportunity, our Operating Partnership Program brings skills and money together to build a great company.
Our company acquisitions support our efforts in providing value to our partners. While we will occasionally review a company proposal independent of management, we are focused on matching an opportunity with an existing operations-oriented partner.
We do not broker companies, but do offer mergers and acquisitions consulting for both sellers and buyers. Please contact us for additional information and current criteria for a potential acquisition.
