HBSI Capital is focused on helping grow your organization. We provide investment, as well as management consulting, to help level up your organization. Our preferred engagement model is that the existing leadership continues to run the business. We provide investment and guidance at the board level with an option of support on the ground. We also prefer to focus on mentorship at the CEO level and in the Executive Team where deemed appropriate.
We are a collaborative and flexible group. Sometimes figuring out the best model involves discussion as we get use to each other’s working styles. Having a clear vision and goal helps align everyone more easily.
