We are looking for opportunities to found, acquire or provide growth capital to a business.  We prefer situations where we have control or a path to control and which exhibit some of the following characteristics:

Value-Add: The core product or service adds significant value to the customers.  Commodity businesses competing purely on price are less attractive for us.

Defensible Niche: The business has a defensible niche within an industry.   Our experience is that clear focus is an important asset.

People: There is a highly capable and passionate leader who comes with the idea or the business.

Speed & Certainty: There is value to a timely and definitive decision.  TPO has a flat structure with permanent capital, allowing us to make quick decisions and provide certainty to both sellers and management teams.

Complexity: We are sophisticated in financial analysis and structuring.  This allows us to differentiate ourselves in certain complex situations.
