Our Engagement Process
While each of our General Partners offers specific strategic, operational, and financial expertise, every investment decision at Commonwealth is made by the entire partnership.
Typically, one of our investment professionals will engage with you, the entrepreneur, to discuss your vision and to evaluate your business plan. If the company fits our investment criteria, we may schedule an initial introductory meeting to learn more about your company’s product or service, your target market, and your management team.
If there seems to be a good match between Commonwealth and your company, we will then conduct thorough diligence to gain a strong understanding of the business and its market drivers. Our diligence may involve a visit to the company site, customer reference calls, product/technology evaluation, and in-depth market research. We place an exceptionally high value on the management team, therefore we like to make sure that both the Commonwealth investment team and company management meet in person and get to know each other. A presentation to the entire Commonwealth partnership is usually the final step in the process.
