One part private equity; one part incubator and a dash of advisory
At Loeb Enterprises we have a portfolio of companies in which we have made large early stage and follow-on investments with partner capital. In addition and true to our roots, we also start companies with three enterprises that are now in stages that range from pre-revenue to tens-of-millions in sales.
The company is guided by professionals with disparate experiences but share a legacy of entrepreneurship. We are fortunate to have experts in online and offline marketing, finance, technology, media, patent prosecution and more.
For our portfolio companies, we actively seek successful serial entrepreneurs who have a kernel of an idea for their next venture – fruit, we’d like to think, off the high branches and not from the ground. If the concept resonates with our team, we mold it, help commercialize it and fund it with a great deal more than the typical contribution of start-up capital. We also directly launch companies and like doing so. It keeps our saw sharp and we enjoy the balance of the funding needs and periodic exits of portfolio companies with the consistent positive cash flows of home grown companies.
And from time to time, we embrace interesting projects: novel ideas and innovative companies that require our intellectual capital versus the more traditional kind. We don’t engage in these opportunities to pay the bills; rather we work for the equity opportunities.
Last, we like having fun. We enjoy hard work and hard thinking. We thrill to challenges and are enthused by defying the long odds endured by entrepreneurs who bring ideas to life.
