Our deal-by-deal approach provides us the flexibility to pursue investments across multiple stages of development and industries alongside aligned, committed investors and industry experts.
This strategy minimizes problems associated with traditional, blind-pool private fund investments by mitigating exposure to common liquidity delays and suboptimal exits timed to show a "win" for the next fund raise.
Skin in the game.
Valedor’s partners will invest meaningful capital in each opportunity directly and/or through the Valedor Partners Fund.
We believe our approach will be attractive to investors who seek discrete investment opportunities as opposed to blind-pool funds, where due diligence is limited to evaluating a general partner, strategy, business cycle, and past track record.
We will seek opportunities in which we believe we can use our operational, financial, and technological expertise to create long-term value through durable profit improvements resulting in higher growth, cash flow, and returns.
With the exception of upstream and midstream energy and real estate (sectors we generally plan to avoid in the current cycle due to high levels of local, organized capital managed by qualified sponsors), we are relatively agnostic about sector or industry, and are flexible as to where we fit within a capital structure so long as we believe the opportunity exists to enact meaningful operational change.
We seek to structure our investments to achieve strong returns on invested
capital while also limiting our downside risk through asset coverage, preferred structures, staged
investments (equity lines), and/or active involvement and value-added initiatives.
We pursue lower middle market growth equity and buyout opportunities in businesses headquartered in the United States. We seek companies that we believe can endure industry or economic cycles, and benefit from our operational, financial, and technological experience.
We structure private fund solutions for talented and trusted general partners and, through the Valedor Partners Fund, provide an opportunity for exposure to all our deals and compelling early and later stage companies and specialized private funds in which we passively invest.
We provide strategic and operational advice, CFO-level modeling, and funding to drive growth for “boot-strapped,” venture-stage businesses (typically post-seed, pre-Series A) with revenue and strong product-market fit.
