Next Step Capital Partners™ invests in companies with a proven revenue-generation model in place.
Market-ready product or service
Next Step Capital Partners™ targets companies with a successful product or service. Companies in the product design or development phase, or those exploring options for marketing or sales approach, are not an appropriate fit for this model.
Successful, committed owners
First and foremost, Next Step Capital Partners™ invests in people – their ideas, their passions, and their track records. As a result, we look for deep domain experience, an appropriate mix of critical business skills, and a solid record of success in previous ventures.
Capital Requirements of $250K – $2M
Next Step Capital Partners™ is focused on investments of $250K – $2M to support sales expansion, go-to-market plans, product launch, or other near-term operational objectives. We typically fund those companies with the capacity to begin generating incremental revenue from our investment in the short term. Investments are generally made in stages based on achievement of revenue-related milestones.
Next Step Capital Partners™ invests primarily in companies based in Texas, though future plans do include geographic expansion. We are not currently resourced to consider investments outside of the state unless the circumstances are uniquely compelling.
