Every member of the Globespan team views the success of our entrepreneurs and their companies as his or her number one priority. Throughout our history, we have shown that this approach generates superior returns for our limited partners. We get tremendous gratification from helping our entrepreneurs build world-class companies. Globespan offers exceptional access into domestic and global markets, superior counsel grounded in a broad perspective, and a team based, collaborative approach to company building.
Globespan draws on more than 60 years of collective technology and operational experience from leading companies such as Akamai and IBM. Combined with our experience as founders or early team members of 8 technology start-ups, we understand what it takes to build world-class companies.
We bring broad perspective to our portfolio companies from both inside and outside of our firm. For example, our CIO Advisory Board is a group of technology experts who offer us and our portfolio companies critical perspective from the vantage point of high level IT decision makers.
Each of our portfolio companies benefits from the collective expertise and network of the entire Globespan team. Our dedication to a collaborative approach and our vested interest in each others’ success mean that our whole team is engaged to do everything they can to drive the success of each of our portfolio companies.
Over the years, we have helped our companies with strategic planning and priority setting, senior management recruitment, access to vital partners, structuring of strategic alliances, evaluation of follow on financing, and eventual sale or public offering of a company.
