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.
