Morgan Hill Partners: From Startup to Scale-up

February 26, 2019

When almost 96% of early stage businesses fail in the first four years, it’s clear that there is something missing between starting a business and flourishing in business. Morgan Hill Partners, a venture services firm, works hard to provide the stepping stones necessary to take new startups from where they are, to where they want to be.

Made up of a talented team experienced in advising and investing in high-growth tech startups, the MHP team is dedicated to using creative solutions in order to solve the many problems that plague early stage businesses. Through their path-to-value process, Morgan Hill Partners incorporates a data-driven approach to identify the specific solution for each individual business, no matter the organizational stage (Discovery through Scale) they are in.

Morgan Hill utilizes a range of assessments as part of their approach to get a snapshot of where a company is at today and how that evolves over time. These assessments include; investment opportunity, tech assessment and even individual/organizational assessments to maximize the ability of the team.

Morgan Hill Partners differentiates beyond just the careful assessment of the important

aspect that make up a startup.  MHP is an exclusive group of fractional C-level executives, for early-stage tech companies that have functional gaps, but aren’t ready for full-time execs in each discipline. They work with the philosophy of “been there, done that,” helping unpolished gems of startups to get to the next level!

Striving to be a founder’s most trusted partner and an investor’s best access to quality deal flow isn’t easy, but that’s what the Morgan Hill team specializes in. Due to their belief in the companies they align with, they invest a portion of their fees to align performance with client outcomes.

Despite only being a year old, the firm has seen much growth and promising investment in Tampa Bay, having increased from 1 client to 15 clients and 25 affiliates. Their mission is simple; to foster growth in a sector that often lacks the resources and guidance it needs to survive those first difficult years as startups.
