Akmazo Capital announces the launch of a comprehensive Executive-In-Residence program aimed at matching top executives and leading SaaS companies in the New England area. The Akmazo Capital EIR program focuses on mentoring the next generation of mid-market SaaS executives, supporting their full potential, providing access to opportunities for growth, and accelerating the evolution of their career options.
Akmazo Capital’s unique approach to the EIR program matches each participant to one or more full-time leadership positions with portfolio companies, allowing the executive to have an immediate impact on operations while participating in Akmazo’s portfolio-wide strategic planning. Subsequently, the participant can choose to remain permanently with a portfolio company, continue as an EIR participant, or join Akmazo Capital on a full-time basis.
“Our EIR program provides remarkable benefits to all parties involved, a true win-win-win,” said Jaime Ellertson, Chairman, Managing Partner, and Co-Founder at Akmazo Capital. “EIR participants get an opportunity to hone their skills further with the mentoring support of Akmazo’s experienced partners while simultaneously gaining insight into the operating fundamentals of a private equity firm. Portfolio Companies get to hire accomplished, hard-to-recruit leaders who can have an immediate and outsized impact on their operations. Akmazo gets future partners or principals who can help us scale our Active Advisor model.”
The Akmazo Active Advisor model is a key element of the firm’s operations-oriented investment strategy. It establishes a working partnership with portfolio company management teams and gives them access to the partners’ guidance in all functional operating roles, extensive former employee and customer networks, and a proven, repeatable, and disciplined operating model refined across multiple success stories. Designed as an extension of the Active Advisor model, the Akmazo EIR program can help portfolio companies reach their potential even faster.
