Architect invests in businesses that have a sustainable competitive advantage due to mission critical products and services or strong brand loyalty. Frequently these companies are undergoing a transition phase arising from ownership matters that can benefit from a new partner to drive transformation or accelerated growth. Through our process-driven investment approach and focused operating strategy, we strive to unlock inherent value in partnership with our management teams.
Architect seeks business with upside potential, whether it be through entering new markets, adding complimentary products or services, or exploring add-on acquisitions with our dedicated business development team. We are rigorous in the development of meaningful and coherent business strategy with our management teams, and we provide operational support to enable leadership to execute on their long-term plan.
