ENGAGEMENT OPTIONS

Our engagement model allows PE and VC firms and their portfolio companies to reduce their current spend on consulting and professional services fees while optimizing performance and accelerating results. By partnering with N2Ventures, private equity and venture capital firms can cease incurring the brain damage associated with the inefficiencies of managing multiple vendor relationships.

We offer a bespoke engagement model that can include fee discounts and deferrals, performance based compensation, co-investment and other structural contracting enhancements that make doing business with N2Ventures easy, efficient and effective.

 

VALUE PROPOSITION

 
Lastly, partnering with N2Ventures adds to the competitive value proposition when pursuing investment opportunities. We give you the ability to sell, and more importantly, deliver non-financial value adds post-closing. Astute companies look for partners who can mitigate risks, recognize opportunities and help to ensure operational success by adding value to the business model, talent pool, and culture post investment.

The reality is quality professional services are expensive, and many companies simply don’t have the ability to leverage outside talent and resources in proportion to their needs. N2Ventures helps fill both strategic and operating gaps that exist in high growth companies. We bring our partners the tools, talent, connections and resources needed to execute like a more mature company thereby driving growth faster and more profitably than their competitors.
