Investor Network by JD (A raw blog with facts and no time to cross Ts!)
WHAT IS HOT
We are conducting a survey with business owners of EBITDA companies. Our goal is to produce a Webinar series and other educational resources to address their major concerns. From growth to exit as well as their personal life. Contact JD via text at +1 858-869-9483 or JD@RedHookCapital.co anytime.
Always cool to see exit image even if it is based on VC back exits!
NETWORKING THIS WEEK
We are focusing on almost all EBITDA companies because we provide referrals to other investors. Today we cove some of our focused areas in specialty manufacturing and industrial technology:
- Test & measurement
- Flow & process control
- Instrumentation & sensors
- Filtration (liquids)
- Other high value-added niche manufacturing segments Consumer Products and Services
Again, the key is a company that needs growth capital or possible consolidation play based on few high margin products for the cornerstone of the consolidation company. I call it the cake and frosting play (i.e. high margins = frosting).
Referrals are always welcome for growth capital, consolidation, or strategy session for few hours or few days! Text JD Morris at +1 858-869-9483
Here is a list of deals based on sales, closings, IPOs, and more! Please always check with the website of the company or investor as this information is from the Associated Press, Bloomberg, CB Insights, Forbes, Reuters, Wall Street Journal, or other 3rd party sources. These deals are picked because one of our advisors is an expert in the space. Here is the Pipeline:
