The FOD Capital Difference
We invest in people with purpose. These True Entrepreneurs are focused, hands-on, driven and persistent. Our portfolio company leaders build and operate within a culture where no job is too small, and no challenge is too big. Our unique investment philosophy borrows from the proven business principles adopted by our founders.
FOD prefers structured secured bridge debt with equity “kickers” accomplished through warrant coverage and/or conversion features. Our strategy also tends to focus on direct investments that have mid-term holding periods and moderate risk elements with above average yields.
FOD prefers profitable, growth companies with reasonably foreseeable liquidity events, such as sale/mergers or IPOs.
We invest in highly selective earlier-stage, exceptional yield potential companies with experienced, disciplined management, disruptive technologies or products, and large “white-space” exploitable markets.
Unique Partnership Model
At FOD Capital, we have successfully partnered with a variety of unique companies across several industries. The constant thread in our portfolio is the spirit of entrepreneurial leadership at the center of each company we invest in.
simple business models
We invest in simple business models that are easy to understand and straight-forward to measure. Our funding and investment requirements are simple too, so everyone can focus on building actual long-term value.
We value operational models where roles are created out of necessity, not convenience. We value organizations where smart systems and thoughtful processes are put in place to generate consistent returns over time.
We look for leaders and partners who communicate in a timely and transparent manner. We value clarity in all our communications, and we welcome opportunities to confront brutal facts together as one team.
From IT investments to everyday facilities expense, we like people who take responsibility for capital like it's their own. The companies in our portfolio are led by conscientious leaders focused on true value creation.
