Collaboration and insights platform purpose-built for PE helping new and emerging funds, including Arcspring and North Star Capital Investors, create and showcase a differentiated approach to operations and value creation
NEW YORK — September 21, 2021 — Maestro, the collaboration and insights platform built for the PE industry, today announced the launch of a practice area focused on meeting the unique technology needs of emerging managers, including first time funds. As these sponsors seek to compete in today’s hyperactive deal-making environment, many are turning to Maestro, the singular insights and collaboration platform purpose built for PE firms, to establish a modern and tech-enabled approach to managing portfolio operations and all phases of the PE lifecycle in order to showcase their impact to existing and prospective investors.
To date, several first time funds and emerging managers, such as Arcspring and North Star Capital Investors, have implemented Maestro to enhance reporting and operational functions across partner, deal, and portfolio company management teams.
“As our portfolio has expanded, Maestro has allowed us to establish a centralized repository for all portfolio operations while enhancing collaboration between our partners and portfolio management teams,” said Duncan Angove, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Arcspring. “Maestro supports our data-driven approach to portfolio management and value creation, and has been an indispensable platform as we continue to scale our fund.”
Private Equity sponsors use Maestro to build playbooks and drive a technology-enabled operating model across all activities, from diligence to exit. The platform enables early funds to stay on track while preserving precious resources and keeping teams lean. Funds will realize even more value as they grow their portfolios and expand their use of Maestro over time.
“Maestro is invaluable in allowing us to establish a consistent approach across fundraising, investing, and value creation processes,” said Nicholas Cafferillo, Managing Partner at North Star Capital Investors. “As we continue to scale, the flexible nature of the platform and the breadth of PE-specific features enables us to more efficiently grow our portfolio, help our companies transform their businesses, track and monitor the progress of value creation activities, and demonstrate the impact of our strategies and efforts to LPs.”
In addition to attracting investment, Maestro helps funds win competitive deals as managers demonstrate their partnership approach and expertise to prospective portfolio executive teams and showcase how the platform can enhance collaboration and accelerate growth.
“Every sponsor needs to demonstrate to discerning LPs that they have the right strategy, model, and plan to positively impact value creation,” said Omar Divina, CEO of Maestro. “Maestro helps new managers establish consistent, efficient, and repeatable operational and investing processes from the start, enabling them to distinguish themselves in today’s competitive PE market and attract interest from a broader range of potential investors.”
