The companies we invest in are typically led by people with entrepreneurial spirits. Our goal is to retain and cultivate that fertile environment. While it’s important to bring strategy and structure to an organization, we avoid creating bureaucracies and burdensome activities that prevent employees from focusing on the tasks at hand.

We believe in letting managers manage, and empower them with the tools they need to succeed. As an active board, we lend our expertise where it’s needed and do our best to strengthen the effectiveness of the management team. When employees know the company is in good, capable hands, they are more likely to stay and invest themselves in its future.

SEH recognizes that employee retention is key to a company’s long term success. We encourage hard work and promote cultures that encourage innovation, critical thinking, imagination and when necessary, constructive confrontation. Employee contributions are valued and rewarded with a well-run organization and opportunities for advancement.
