At Fort Ashford we are big on capital, and even bigger on relationships.
We provide our own capital which means two things. One, we can provide capital extremely fast. Two, we are very selective about where we choose to invest. We are cooperative investors providing mentor capital. We invest in companies and people who value that experience and are excited about working together towards personal and organizational growth.
Funding up to $5 Million
While up to $5 million in funding is our “sweet spot” we do occasionally provide bridge capital, and have the capability for additional investment where appropriate.
We invest up to $5 million of our own principal capital into companies within the following contexts:
• Liquidity for Large Shareholder Positions
• Debt Consolidation or Recapitalization
• Acquisition or Event-driven Capital
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
A proven product or service that addresses the needs of a sizeable market.
A demonstrated ability to deliver the product or service and sell it at a margin that enables short and long-term success.
Verifiable systems and procedures in place to consistently deliver high-quality products or services to market in a timely and efficient manner.
Capable owners and managers who operate according to a philosophy that fosters stability; and are willing to say “no” to opportunities that the business is ill-suited or ill-prepared to pursue.
