The Federal Circle provides a range of services to our investor partners
Proprietary Investment Opportunities: We incubate teams – putting them trough a demanding process. The results are well tested teams and business plans and a series of important in-place agreements. The Federal Circle provides these opportunities to our investor partners. Before any investment opportunity is introduced to those partners, we spend the time and effort to:
Identify and vet teams and companies with extraordinary potential
Work with them to sharpen their business plan and strengthen their team
Conduct appropriate diligence on the team, its members and associated intellectual property
Develop a strategic and tactical implementation plan
Conduct industry and area surveys designed to test the team’s value proposition.
Negotiate agreements with the teams that specify ownership, earn-in potential, operational and reporting responsibilities and more.
Provide the appropriate performance metrics
The teams are tested by three red-teams along the way and must pass our strict standards before we introduce the investment opportunity to our investor partners. We do not ‘shop’ these investment opportunities outside of our investor partners. Our compensation for this stage is success based.
Fiduciary Oversight: Once an investment has been made, TFC provides oversight for companies and teams which we incubate. This includes populating the board of directors and advisory board. Our preference is to act in a meta-advisory role as the investor’s fiduciary representative. We establish and enforce performance metrics, conduct management performance reviews, supervise the succession planning, audit and compensation committees of the board, analyze and review management reporting to the investors, and much more. Our compensation for these services are governed by an agreement with our investor partners.
Due Diligence and Review: In addition to the teams it is incubating, we provide diligence services to our partner investors. These services include assessment of potential investments and existing portfolio companies. We custom-build teams to do this work. Their remit can range from a review of the financial condition of the company through an assessment of the management team to a valuation of the intellectual property owned by the company. TFC teams can identify risks long before they become crisis and then supervise the development and implementation of plans to mitigate potential damage. Our compensation for these services are governed by an agreement with our investor partners.
Industry Analysis and Targeting: Our investor partners may have an interest in a particular sector or industry. TFC puts together teams to help with refine and focus this interest. Because of the deep knowledge and wide connections of our advisers, we can develop an assessment and provide actionable guidance that will help our investor partners focus and refine their interests. We can provide industry analysis and targeting information; including analysis of specific companies or groups of companies. Our compensation for these services are governed by an agreement with our investor partners.
Portfolio Company Review: Our investor partners have investments in companies other than through TFC. We provide a fresh set of experienced eyes. We assemble special teams to review the performance, management team, business plan and resourcing of our those companies. Our reporting is confidential and directly to our investor partners. Our compensation for these services are governed by an agreement with our investor partners.
Management Services: Because of our standing relationships with successful CEO’s and management teams, TFC can design, assemble and oversee teams for our investor partner’s portfolio companies. We can also provide interim management team members and fiduciary oversight. Our compensation for these services are governed by an agreement with our investor partners.
