Finding the right investment partner is a big deal. You need to know that whomever you work with is going to understand your vision and shepherd the company with integrity. As a founder or executive, you should not settle for anything less. So, we wanted to share a little bit about who we are and the beliefs that guide us.
Beacon is keen to invest in teams that have built solid, innovative products to solve real-world regulatory, compliance and data challenges. We have been entrepreneurs, start-up founders, financial service executives and investors, so we know what it takes to achieve success. As a team, we strive to operate at the highest standards of excellence, and we invest in companies that do the same. Our values stand at the center of everything we do and drive our decision-making, both personally and professionally.
We are a hands-on group, committed to partnering closely with each portfolio company to support critical functions — from operations to sales to strategy — to achieve broad success for both the company and its employees. As such, we invest in a small number of companies at a time (typically 3-5), ensuring ample bandwidth to help tackle challenges (and celebrate successes). We are patient, long-term investors, and because we invest only our own money, we do not face external pressures for a premature exit in order to score a “quick win.”
Beacon is a global company and we have a global focus. We have achieved significant success in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pac, and are particularly proud of our ability to help European companies expand into North America.
