Strategic Planning and Execution
We help clients think through where they want to go and how they can get there. We can help analyze, confront, and solve business problems.
Financial Planning and Management
We help with revenue and cost management, improving operational management, cash flow and working capital management, and forecasting and budgeting.
If financing is required, the NBIF can help clients by leveraging our network of capital providers to find cost-efficient acquisition, leveraged or specialty financing.
From time to time the NBIF's angel and venture capital arm may invest across
funds and direct opportunities, backing new ventures, emerging private
companies, and as a co-investing partner. We’ll invest early, we’ll invest late.
We can lead the deal, we can follow. Above all else, we invest in extraordinary
people that strive to create a durable competitive advantage.
