Elmcore Group invests the firm’s own equity in companies where we can add immediate value. With proven executive talent in both finance and operations, we marry the “art of the deal” to the “science of business”. We lend our support services through a global operations know-how, leading the charge in sales, cost controls, and strategic marketing, while being mindful of the long-term exit strategy. Building shareholder value is our primary objective.

Sound investing is the action of taking calculated risks to earn a reward. Our goal is to minimize these risks through detailed analysis and unbiased due diligence, while striving to meet the specified investment objectives, guidelines, or limitations of the particular strategy. We source information from everywhere, searching for disconnects between market reality and select business fundamentals. In the end, we take a conservative approach, seeking capital preservation and the accumulation of wealth without unnecessary risks.


Elmcore Group is constantly looking for new investment opportunities and control positions in both public and private entities. We are active investors and bring not just capital, but also our leadership and expertise to each and every investment. It’s important that all of our investments overlap in some capacity. We are focused on growing businesses that need restructuring or alternative financial and operating techniques.

Our due diligence process involves the assessment of three primary elements:

  • Quality of management
  • Ability of platform to reach scale
  • Intellectual property


In order to succeed in today’s competitive environment, a business has to constantly evolve. The business plan that is implemented early on is rarely the ultimate vision. As a consequence, management has to reinvent itself over and over again. Therefore, leadership and drive is often more important than a skill which can be developed over time.

The market size must be large enough to achieve industry profit margins in a short period of time. We concentrate on the sales channel first, and then back into the capital expenditures necessary to provide a long-term platform for growth.

We believe in unique products and services being delivered to the market that provide a solution to an existing problem. This may include the requirement of patents and trademarks, as necessary.


We leverage our network of professional relationships to help evaluate investment opportunities brought to our attention. In this sense, we are looking for commercial feedback in the marketplace related to potential sales and distribution channels that are not otherwise pursued. Accordingly, we “test” the market prior to committing to invest in any business or project.
