Delancey Street Capital Partners
Partnering with clients is one of our central philosophies; it is core to how we operate. We commit to our clients throughout each stage of their growth and development from early formation to expansion to maturity. By deploying our capital, we more closely align ourselves with our clients to work with them over an extended period of time to prepare the company for a more valuable exit.
How do we do this? First, we leverage insights gained from years of M&A and investment experience to identify benchmarks for internal and external improvements that will enhance value. Second, we utilize our network to make strategic introductions to accelerate growth and improve profitability. Third, when appropriate, we assist in the recruitment of key executive talent and seasoned board members. Lastly, we communicate with our clients to ensure personal plans are in place for wealth management and estate planning purposes in advance of an exit or other future liquidity event.
Through Delancey Street Capital Partners, we can invest capital directly in our partner clients. This can be on a stand-alone basis or as a co-investment alongside leading private equity and venture firms as part of a broader capital raise process that we manage.
Bill Filip, co-founder of Baird Ventures, leads our Merchant Banking effort under Delancey Street Capital Partners and brings more than 17 years of investment experience and perspective.
