Value Creation Starts Here

About Us

Who are we?

 Value Creation Strategies is a private investment firm based in Austin, TX.  We are focused on providing capital and strategic support to entrepreneurs and helping them align financial and manpower resources towards achieving successful outcomes.  We pride ourselves on providing creative and flexible capital arrangements that create value for all involved parties. 

Who is our typical partner?

We work hard to find entrepreneurs and business owners who are looking to take their business to the next level, but are in need of a partner with capital resources and deep operating expertise to help them get there.  We are growth stage agnostic and will consider seed, venture, growth capital or control buyout investments.

The VCS Difference

Value Creation

 We help each of our portfolio companies align their allocation of internal resources to initiatives that drive value for their customers and maximize their ROI.

Experience

 Our team has over 50 years of combined investing and  operational experience (including Fortune 500 C-Suite roles) and over 100  investment and M&A transactions.

Flexible Capital

 We invest our own capital and aren't tied to any particular investment style, time-frame or vehicle.  We avoid saddling our investments with leverage that has become the norm for most private equity investors.

What do we Look for in our investments?

Customer Value Proposition

A clearly articulated and measurable customer value proposition is critical to the long term success of any business enterprise

Market Leadership

Whether your market is $10 million or $10 billion, setting yourself apart from the competition with sustainable competitive advantages is a key driver of long term value

Management Talent

We believe in partnering with high-performing entrepreneurs and  empowering them with the guidance and resources they need to succeed 

Compelling Growth Story

Both a track-record of profitable, recurring revenue momentum and clearly defined opportunities to continue or accelerate that growth

Cyclicality Mitigation

While we are industry agnostic, we do look for operators in recession-resistant sectors or with sufficient  downside mitigation strategies, predictable revenue streams, and  diversification

Revenues between $0 and $50 million EBITDA between $0 and $7 million
