Focusing entirely on long-term capital appreciation, NCP seeks to partner with outstanding management teams as they attempt to build successful companies. We concentrate our investments in growth industries, where our individual Limited Partners, General Partners, and the professionals at our affiliate, Needham & Company, LLC, have significant expertise.
What distinguishes NCP from many other equity groups is our Limited Partners. Because many of them have founded and built major companies themselves, they understand the difficulty, time commitment, and level of effort required to grow a solid and long-lasting business. As a result, the management teams of our portfolio companies benefit from their experience, relationships, and active involvement, which includes:
* Serving on the board of directors
* Providing market intelligence
* Making introductions to potential customers and corporate partners
* Recruiting key employees
* Collaborating on strategy development and implementation
