We believe in what we do. We look for that same passion and drive in the companies and people we partner with.
“We enjoy being a strategic partner and take this role very seriously. Working alongside management we look for ways to be helpful and add value.”
Fontinalis is distinct from venture capital firms in that we only partner with companies that are working to improve mobility around the globe. We invest across all facets of the world’s transportation infrastructure, but limit ourselves to this area of expertise and are dedicated to our mission within the space.
Our investment partnership is also unique. With an eye toward accelerating portfolio company growth, we have chosen specific L.P.’s due to their highly strategic attributes and alignment with the Fontinalis platform.
Each Fontinalis transaction is designed to support the interests of all parties and create a strong working partnership between Fontinalis and the company’s senior management.
The Fontinalis diligence process is systematic, thorough and efficient. We understand the importance of timely funding and work to meet management’s needs. Our investment timeline depends upon the availability of information and the complexity of the underlying business.
The Fontinalis process is highly collaborative. We work with management to conduct in-depth reviews of a portfolio company’s positioning. Based on this analysis, we draw on our experience, resources and relationships to help portfolio companies grow and expand into new markets.
The Fontinalis network runs deep. In addition to our ties in the transportation and communications industries, we maintain close relationships with our colleagues in government, banking and private equity and with leading experts from a broad range of industries and academic disciplines.
What we look for
We base our partnerships on absolute integrity, trust, respect and excellence.
With a record of accomplishment in transportation technology and a desire to continue improving mobility across the globe, we want to work with innovative companies that are performance-driven, exceptionally focused and positioned to succeed.
