Having acquired, led and grown successful businesses with a wide range of competitive characteristics and across an assortment of business climates, Wilkes Lane Capital’s principals take a pragmatic and versatile approach to achieving business success. Prior to acquisition/investment, we develop a thorough understanding of the plumbing of the target business and its business sector. We focus on understanding the relative importance of key inputs to the business (e.g., labor, intellectual property, operations, sales, technology, financing, risk management, etc.). We then identify leverage points to push growth and identify the systems that need to be in place to ensure it is met. We are hands-on investors and business owners. We are not subject to exit horizons associated with private equity as we intend to hold all of our investments for the long-term.
