Finding the Key Ingredients for Business Success
STRIVING FOR EXCELLENCE
Ignition BD believe that all businesses require five key ingredients to be successful:
A well-defined and clearly communicated strategy
A strong and thriving company culture
Great people that share in the rewards of success
Scalable systems and processes
Robust financial planning, reporting and management
THIS PHILOSOPHY UNDERPINS OUR APPROACH TO INVESTING
SETTING A CLEAR VISION
We take the time to understand what makes a business successful today and the biggest opportunities moving forward. Where we are investing alongside existing owners, we help develop, test and refine growth plans to ensure we are fully aligned on the key priorities and the resources needed to deliver them.
BUILDING STRONG FOUNDATIONS
We seek to leverage our expertise, particularly in digital and fulfilment to help plug any people gaps in a business and support the development of any capabilities that are needed to scale up.
Whilst we are excited by growth, it always needs to be value creative rather than be for its own sake. We always maintain a disciplined focus on return-on-capital.
ENSURING CULTURAL FIT
We will only invest in businesses if we think that we are a good fit culturally. If we are acquiring a company, our preference is to identify and work with a potential future leader that is already in the business to help ensure continuity.
We always aim to carve out a portion of equity in any deal to give the management team an opportunity to share in any future success that they help create.
