Alexander Enterprise is the family office of entrepreneur Greg Alexander. The family members, and their advisors, invest their time, talent, and treasure in one thing- boutique professional services firms. The combination of growth capital with years of accumulated expertise in this segment results in exceptional returns for the family, and its partners.
“90% of firms fail to scale and exit because they lack capital and knowhow. We can solve that problem.”
What We Do
Alexander Enterprise is hyper specialized in its approach. The organization is focused on solving one problem and it believes if this problem is resolved, extraordinary returns are available.
The problem of focus is there are approximately 2 million professional services firms in the US, but 90% of them never reach scale. Because of this, the owners of these firms rarely create wealth with a successful exit. Yet, they should because companies spend $560 billion annually on professional services.
There is a solution to this problem which results in significant wealth creation. The solution is specialized management know how and plenty of available growth capital. Alexander Enterprise has developed these two missing ingredients by specializing in six ways.
1-The industry: We only work with professional service firms
2-The segment: Pre-scale boutiques are our focus
3-The individual: We work with ownership
4-The funds: We invest our own personal capital
5-The know how: Relentless accumulation of specific management knowledge
6-The team: A family office staff with proven experience handling boutique professional firms
How We Do It
We provide you with growth capital and management knowhow. The lack of these two resources is why 90% of firms fail to scale and exit. We partner with firms who have what it takes to reach the pinnacle of their success but may be lacking the resources to capitalize on the opportunity.
Like steel sharpens steel, we take the proven strengths of your business, add our personal growth capital and specialized business knowhow in boutique professional service firms and together we successfully scale your firm and ignite your exit.
