Having worked in major multi-nationals, been active investors, and experienced the excitement and difficulties of being entrepreneurs we felt we had a unique set of skills and experience that could provide significant benefit to early stage companies, their people, and the ecosystems that are working hard to support them.
Over the years we have seen many common issues that all companies face and felt that we could help ‘bridge’ a number of these by creating a Business Building philosophy that focuses on the business-related and people-related aspects of any venture. We call this the A2 Business Development Methodology ™
When creating the vision and value system for our company, we focused strongly in assessing what had driven others, fueled their passion and curiosity, and allowed them to be successful in various business ventures and their personal lives. This was a critical process that we now utilize with all the companies and people we interact with and highlighted two key success factors Passion for the Business, and Passion for the People involved.
As a result our company vision is to → work on the projects we love with the people we care about, trust and respect.
We are also strong believers in “Standing on the shoulders of giants”.As a result, we decided to create A2 as a dynamic business vehicle that leverages our business partnerships, investor partnerships, government sponsorships, and global management talent. Leveraging the strength of these networks allows us to offer greater value to our portfolio companies, the other companies we assist, and to the entrepreneurial ecosystem as a whole.
Critical to empowering these powerful networks is a set of values that create the unique culture for A2. Giving Trust1 as an essential value across the team and ecosystem, ensuring we Make a Difference2 to the networks and the people within them, to always Innovate and Stimulate3 to keep transforming, while always accepting the Risk and Responsibility4 that comes with building businesses. Lastly, we create a Sense of Belonging5 to bond us all together.
We are delighted you have taken the time to visit us and we look forward to working with you, working for you, and interacting with you for many years to come.
