LPC Investment Experience
LPC has collective expertise that can offer more to portfolio companies than other funds investing in both the public and private sectors. The Funds founders have worked together for approximately 15 years managing investment portfolios of over $1.5B. LPC management has deep transactional experience with strong backgrounds in legal, accounting, M&A, management consulting and life sciences. Our investment professionals also understand the exigencies of entrepreneurial companies, having started, funded and managed several operating businesses. They have each worked closely with founders/inventors, managers, and sales teams and know firsthand the challenges of both creating a business from the ground up and growing a seasoned business.
In the public company and exchange-listed environment our experience and knowledge of regulatory issues can provide for a more efficient investment process to effectively raise capital thereby minimizing costs and dilution to its existing stakeholders. Our investment decisions are driven by this experience, our fundamental analysis and our investment process, not by the trading markets.
