Experience Matters, Both Ours and Theirs

Over the years, we’ve developed well-established relationships with executive teams, highly experienced in raising capital, or in attaining backing for startups, spin-offs and acquisitions. This helps us introduce potential transactions that turn into exciting and lucrative investment opportunities for our private equity and venture capital clients.

Venture Capital: It takes a delicate balance of strengths and skills to provide effective leadership for venture capital and portfolio start-ups. This can make finding well-qualified candidates for these essential roles particularly complex. Fortunately, it’s one that Caldwell is well-qualified to handle.

We believe no other executive search firm can offer you a more intimate understanding of the marketplace, and what it takes to create enduring value. Investors need a balance of vision, process and passion, paired with strong instincts for sourcing and evaluating investment opportunities. Just as important, executives in a start-up environment must possess the discipline and acumen to sharpen their organization’s strategic plans and drive them forward.

Our highly specialized team of partners relies on its intricate knowledge of the venture capital industry. Over the years, we’ve established key relationships with major influencers in both operating and investing.

Simply put, we know the market inside and out. This sharpens our skills and makes us highly adept at attracting and presenting proven leaders, ready to advance your goals. At Caldwell, we offer the right mix of resources, reach and critical insight to secure you the most desirable, in-demand talent in a complicated and challenging environment.

Private Equity: The alternative asset industry continues to be plagued by the uncertainty of government regulation, a difficult fundraising environment and unattractive listing options. Finding well-qualified leaders who can succeed within these constraints only adds to this field’s complexity.

Rising to the challenge, Caldwell helps clients maximize their returns through our deep domain knowledge within this sector. Specifically, we share relevant search experience and significant operational expertise with the private equity clients we serve.
