The differentiated way Rubicon engages with its portfolio companies and executive teams begins before we even make an acquisition. We spend significant time getting to know the full management team and ensure they contribute to and are aligned around the strategic and operational plans. This allows the combined team to hit the ground running from day one with no surprises after an investment is completed.
Rubicon’s ongoing engagement model consists of board meetings that focus purposeful discussion around the key strategic and operational issues facing the business. Portfolio companies also have access to the extensive library of best practices and examples from across our portfolio, a collaboration platform to interact with executives from our other portfolio companies, and the hands-on operating experience of the Rubicon team.
We believe in the power of our collective experiences to transform businesses, and host an annual Executive Conference to strengthen the peer-to-peer network across our portfolio, share best practices and solve common issues facing our businesses. Additionally, our collaboration platform provides continuous access to peers with similar experiences in scaling and growing enterprise software companies and addressing common issues using our process framework.
