How We Align with Professional Business Services Companies

ACP employs a proven partnership model for every investment. We take a truly collaborative approach from the start to define and resource each company’s growth strategy. Then, we execute as a team post-close to help each portfolio company accelerate growth.

ACP and portfolio company management teams follow a consistent operating rhythm to remain aligned. We aim to help our management teams improve and scale their businesses in several ways, which may include helping teams introduce enhanced sales and marketing processes, pricing strategies, or lead generation techniques; supporting talent acquisition; geographic or service line expansion; or facilitating greater technology adoption. We also focus on inorganic growth opportunities by acting as portfolio companies’ M&A lead, while also helping to build out this capability within their organizations.

Together, our partnership approach is designed to help portfolio companies achieve greater, more transformative growth than they likely would on their own.
