Building companies "the right way"

Clearstone's considered approach to investing extends to its board participation and governance of portfolio companies. We prefer to see companies financed for 18 -24 months worth of working capital between rounds of financing, and operating on a business plan to support that proposition. We work to foster intimate communications between the company's entire management team and its board as part of the practice of regularly evaluating management for performance.

We work hard to build an ecosystem of expertise around our companies

We leverage our external networks and our internal operating executives, who have built companies in the past. We look for leaders in the technology community who can lend expertise and judgment, as well as their networks, and get them involved with the companies their backgrounds best match. Clearstone's active guidance approach to technology investing combines deep knowledge of technology markets, a proven analytical approach, extensive networks, internal operating expertise and an appreciation for communication and rapid problem-solving to shepherd our companies to success in their chosen markets.
