Innova Values

The Innova team aspires to 7 core values. We don’t achieve all of them all of the time, but we do achieve most of them most of the time. We aim to live these values in our relationship with our portfolio companies, and we seek these values in the management teams we partner with.

Drive for Success

We seek situations where we and executive management can develop a clear vision and share the single-minded determination to achieving it.

Mutual Respect

We recognize that there are many paths to success. We must listen for understanding, and we must communicate openly, honestly and directly.

Commitment to Excellence

In an intensely competitive world, excellence in everything we do is the only safe haven.

”Do the Right Thing”

We always seek to establish a position of power for our portfolio companies. But the burden of power lies in how you exercise it. Our credo for business is ”do what you should, not what you can”.

Mental Agility

Drive and commitment are blunt instruments unless thoughtfully directed. We work to develop creative “win-win” solutions that will get all stakeholders behind our efforts.


We aspire to create an environment in which exceptional people outperform their own abilities. This is only possible through exceptional teamwork.


We and the management teams we partner with work hard and long hours. It has to be fun at the same time.
