Unlike venture capital, or private equity companies, Mill Street & Co. is an active management company that brings a disciplined, hands-on approach to both business operations and investment management. Mill Street & Co. applies its SMART Capital® methodology to companies that have proven long-term growth potential. This translates into the intelligent allocation and management of capital with a focus on creating real value for all stakeholders: employees, customers, investors and the communities in which it operates.
Post-investment involvement is where the real value is generated and this is where Mill Street & Co. shines. Examining a business’ structure to determine opportunities for strengthening financial management, human capital, corporate culture, operations, strategy, development, networking, risk management and reporting and analysis is where Mill Street & Co. brings its expertise to the forefront, with the focus on driving strong returns for its shareholders and operating partners.
At the foundation of Mill Street & Co’s success is a commitment to working within a core set of values – integrity, honesty, loyalty, respect, knowledge and generosity – and ensuring that its businesses are managed by those whose expertise and capabilities are aligned with the goals and cultural vision of the company. Yet, it is human capital that ultimately drives success in each of the companies in which Mill Street & Co. invest.
More than ever, businesses are challenged with constant and disruptive change. Nurturing management teams who are resilient and understand how to leverage these market dynamics, while continuing to drive progress, is well-beyond the scope of most venture capital, private equity or investment management companies. As Mill Street is neither of these, its unique approach to operational and investment management is at the heart of its success.
With a commitment to SMART Capital®, especially in relation to financial and human capital practices, Mill Street & Co. has achieved new levels of success through its operating divisions and related subsidiaries.
