Copperstone Capital is about helping Founders get a good return from all the blood sweat and tears you put into your start-ups. The late nights, pivots, wondering how the next bill is going to be paid. It is hard work getting a start-up off the ground, yet 75% of start-ups fail to EXIT. That means 75% of Founders work for NOTHING.
We want to change that.
We have researched how to improve the EXITS and also how to identify when an Early EXIT can happen. This is so that we can help Founders get their first EXIT under their belt and money in the bank. Everything is easier the second time around!!
Let me introduce myself, I am Oscar A.C. Jones and I own Copperstone Capital. For over 35 years, I have been helping owners and managers work smarter, get more results, raise capital and exit. I have worked in both large and small companies and I use the insight gained from this experience to help Founders EXIT their businesses. If you would like to read more, I have written two books: The Exit Roadmap and The Art of the Exit.
I started my career working for PA Consulting Group in Sydney, developing a management-reporting product which merged different types of data to create a full picture of the business, including the ability to see trends happening before they impacted the bottom line. I left to start my own consulting firm, where I was heavily involved in in the shareholder value movement, in which accounting numbers were forsaken and metrics like Economic Value Added (EVA) or Cash Flow Return on Investment (CFROI) were used, for the first time, to see the impact of a balance sheet on performance. I worked with a number of leading international companies in that time including Holt Value Associates, BCG and Marakon Associates.
Along the way, I have developed business cases for a wide range of companies in many industries, including a multi-million M&A transaction in the Railways. I was the principal driver of the business case behind the Australian Government Carbon Capture and Storage Flagship program and I have been involved in over 20 business case or strategy development assignments.
So now you know about us (yawn!!) but let’s talk about you. Have you identified your EXIT zones, do you know who your likely buyers are going to be? Do you have a plan to get noticed? NO? Well what are you waiting for….
