Origin actively leverages the successful operational and investment experience of its team to enhance the value of its portfolio companies. Origin is committed to working closely with its portfolio companies to reduce the risks inherent in new business development while assisting with the building of these enterprises.

Origin seeks to hold board of directors' positions in the majority of its portfolio companies; but when circumstances dictate, Origin team members are ready to play even more active roles during very early company formations. As new companies fill out their management teams, Origin seeks to remove itself from day-to-day operations.

Once a new company is up and running, Origin actively applies its experienced team and network of corporate and financing contacts to develop its companies, working side-by-side with its CEOs, management teams, and other board members. It is Origin's goal to actively pursue a deliberate, hands-on investment optimization approach to aid each portfolio company from inception through liquidity.

Some of the activities in which Origin may take an active role include:

  • Strategy and business plan development
  • Market intelligence and technical due diligence
  • Recruiting senior management
  • Attracting additional investors
  • Attracting Advisory Board members
  • Attracting corporate partners
  • Negotiating and structuring equity financings
  • Negotiating early lines of credit with financial institutions
  • Identifying and negotiating with M&A targets
  • Developing liquidity options

The hands-on role which Origin has with its portfolio companies is evidenced by the Managing Directors' past achievements.
