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.>
