Our Values

Since launching SPE Capital, we remain committed to living out our values in everything we do. They define our business philosophy and underpin our firm’s culture, as well as relationships with every one of our key stakeholders. 

We are entrepreneurs at heart

Identifying opportunities is in our nature

We are entrepreneurial in nature, with an eye for opportunity and a talent for creative problem solving. We seek to understand and empathize with our portfolio companies.

We search for excellence

We are never satisfied with average

We strive to be the best in what we do, consistently pursuing excellence. There is no room for half measures, and we take pride in our effort to be meticulous in everything we undertake. 

We have boots on the ground

There are no walls between us

We are always available on the ground, working hand-in-hand with our partners to deliver exceptional results.

We lead with humility

We are not loud or boastful

Although we are proud of who we are and what we have achieved, we prefer to let our performance speak for itself. We are particularly proud of the successes achieved by our portfolio companies.

We are fair and transparent

Our word is our bond 

We believe that our reputation, as individuals and as a firm, is paramount. We honor our commitments and always act in the best interest of every stakeholder creating outcomes that are fair, just and honest.

We are team players

Nothing great was ever achieved alone

Our team spirit and collaborative working style is essential to our success as an organization. We continually help and support one another towards the achievement of our collective goals and objectives.

Investment Strategy

We understand that successful businesses seek more than the financial capital necessary to achieve their desired runway.

They require a long-term strategic partner that shares their vision and acts to help the company reach its full potential through industry knowledge, international networks and connections and business expertise that will allow their venture to succeed. They want a partner which provides them with the autonomy to lead and maintain decision making power, while supporting their purpose and validating their business ideas.

This is why we follow an investment strategy predicated on long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships with management teams, based on shared vision, trust and reliability. Our boots on the ground approach provides management teams with the financial, strategic and operational support needed to significantly reduce investment risk and drive results. We believe in a patient capital approach which leads to both solid financial returns and social impact.
