We target early stage growth companies that are cultivating a unique brand proposition, operating a specialized distribution, experiential or relationship-driven business model or building technologies that have the potential to impact the quality of consumer experiences. Our companies are driven by visionary and dynamic founders who are disciplined in their approach to efficient entrepreneurship, focusing on driving accelerated growth coupled with an equal emphasis on sustainability.
We believe that each company and situation requires a fresh perspective and approach. The capitalization needs, growth horizon and liquidity profiles of companies innovating within various verticals across the retail and technology sectors often differ from traditional technology companies. Simon Ventures will leverage its industry insights and expertise to provide perspective to its portfolio companies on a range of sound capitalization strategies. In addition to traditional equity, Simon Ventures is open to alternative and creative financing solutions across the capital structure for proven growth companies looking for less dilutive options.
We may take a leading, co-leading or participating position. In each instance, we will explore ways in which to actively leverage Simon's proprietary assets, resources and connections for the benefit of paving a more disruptive path to scale.
