Our Approach
Michael Cline founded Accretive in 1999 as a specialized firm dedicated to creating great companies.

Accretive employs a systematic approach to analyzing markets and uncovering large opportunities for value creation. The goal of our research is to understand a set of customers’ pain points and the other offerings available in the marketplace to solve them. Through this process, we determine if we can create a meaningfully higher value solution for the market. If so, we design a customer-centric business model, ideally with win-win characteristics for all constituents, that is capable of driving the desired outcome. We implement this design by aggressively backing a team of talented, experienced executives that we hand-pick to build the company from the ground-up.

This approach has resulted in a superior track record of building companies that create new industries.
Our Philosophy
Accretive has developed a unique core philosophy that defines our aspirations for each company.

Despite the odds of success, we must commit our lives to building great things. Greatness requires commitment.

Create significant value for your customer versus their next best alternative — including doing nothing. Greatness requires creating value.

Do specific things that matter with simplicity, beauty and extraordinary execution. Greatness requires focus.

Create value in a trusted way for all the key constituencies. Greatness requires enhancing the eco-system.

Failure is a constant. Greatness requires constant learning and change.

Enhance our society. Greatness requires meaning.
