New Leaf works closely with industry professionals who are experts in New Leaf’s fields of interest and are willing to work closely with us on an as needed basis to provide their perspectives on topics and issues that are relevant to due diligence on new investments, on-going issues that arise in the management of existing portfolio companies, and longer term fund strategy. New Leaf’s advisors are all prominent in their fields, and hold senior positions within leading corporations and academic institutions. These experts provide New Leaf and its portfolio companies with their own invaluable insights, but equally importantly open up their networks of contacts in ways that vastly expand and strengthen New Leaf’s own network.
