NextSteps Capital is a private equity fund, working with business owners and operators we have identified that have a competitive advantage and are at growth inflection points where growth capital will make a significant difference in their trajectory.
NextSteps Capital was formed to address the systemic capital access challenges faced by many highly innovative lower middle market businesses that are seeking non control growth capital.
- NextSteps Capital identifies prospects in innovation spaces in a broad range of industries. Innovation spaces form when inflection points (identified by patent/copyright activity, product development, people movements, M&A, licensing activity, and capital formation) create strategic opportunities within specific industry segments, sub-segments, and markets.
- Innovation opportunities are identified through detailed and proprietary assessments of market dynamics, individual company positions, intellectual property, and intangible assets, along with conventional investment analysis metrics.
- NextSteps Capital uses our experience in identifying innovation to find companies with compelling ideas, strong execution capabilities, and empowered management teams.
- NextSteps Capital uses knowledge and capital to facilitate growth as a non-control investor.
NextSteps Capital is a knowledge-driven organization, equally a research firm and a principal investor. From sourcing investment opportunities to assessing and mitigating risk, this research-driven culture provides the firm with better choices, supports smarter decisions, and leads to better results for NextSteps Capital, our portfolio companies, and our investors.
