The XIR Platform

Exceptional businesses are built by exceptional people. Our XIR program combines experience, expertise and acceleration strategies to support founders building transformative businesses, enabling profitable, mid-market companies at the threshold of hyper-growth to realize their full potential.

XIRs are proven founders and CEOs – operators with deep domain expertise who have built and grown companies with hundreds of millions to over a billion dollars in revenues. XIRs identify investments and work alongside founders to provide leadership, mentorship and operational support to drive rapid scale via an active board role.   This collaboration is the X-factor that accelerates the trajectory and improves the eventual outcome of a business.
