Advantages for the enterprise include, Close involvement of a manager; Access to specialised skills, knowledge and contacts; Advice and experienced input for all significant board decisions; Long-term investment horizons ensure aligned goals; Shared risk in expansion; An increased focus on strategic direction and implementation.
