Founded in 1996, Dutchess managed funds have invested in over 250 companies worldwide, with a total transactional value exceeding $1 billion. We’ve advised our portfolio companies located in the U.S., Europe, Asia, Australia and Latin America, in areas of capital markets, business development, financial analysis, mergers and acquisitions, strategic planning, corporate restructuring and bankruptcy.
Through our investments we aim to build relationships that foster growth, drive profitability and create shareholder value.
For small growth enterprises ready to make the transition to an SEC-reporting, publicly-traded company, we have the resources and experience necessary to ensure an expedient, cost-effective and fully compliant ‘go-public’ event either through a self-underwritten offering or reverse merger.
Regardless of the process, “going public” requires significant diligence, deal structuring and regulatory compliance. Over the past two decades, we’ve established a trusted and proven track record of advising on and financing these transactions.
