After a long career as an executive in mainly restaurant businesses, I started my own investment platform. I have yet to find a better partner than Valor. They are inspired by the big aspirations of entrepreneurial endeavors but yet equally willing to go deep into the details of operational execution. A place few partners are willing or capable to go. At heart, they are designers of repeatable processes which makes them a perfect partner for anyone wanting to perfect and then later grow a successful business.
