We believe the best gift you can give an entrepreneur is the headspace to focus on their core mandate. Our comprehensive suite of solutions gives our companies the space to focus on value creation.
From: Running the business gets in the way of GROWING the business
Activities that are not your core mandate, are performed with heroic efforts and take all your time. You lack headspace to perform run activities well, and more importantly unable to focus on growing the business

777’s Suite of Solutions Free People to
Focus On What They do Best
Unlike traditional investment firms, 777 provides capital structure, which allows portfolio companies a longer time horizon to create enduring value. We have deep expertise in underwriting risk and technology that allows us to capitalize on under-served, inefficient markets.
Our Operating Partner team is composed of industry veterans with backgrounds in private equity, venture capital, investment banking, technology, insurance, actuarial science, asset management, structured-credit, risk analytics, complex commercial litigation, and operations expertise
From its first day of operation 777 Partners was built with a strong backbone of shared services for its portfolio companies spanning Accounting, Finance, Human Resources, Procurement, Marketing, Legal, Technology, and Analytics. Our founders reflected on their own experiences as entrepreneurs and realized that all too frequently the thing that defines success from failure is not inside the core business, but in how the business manages its corporate responsibilities like hiring, regulatory readiness or managing money. Because we deploy permanent capital structure and longer time horizon, we take a more thorough approach to operations. We call this system and capabilities “Headspace”.
777’s shared services solution is adopting a Digital-first philosophy. The overarching goal of headspace is to meet portfolio companies where they are versus forcing them to a standardized model – but “high touch is no touch” and the provisioning of the corporate function flexes to the fundamental geography, function, industry, and archetype to make their lives easier and free-up headspace that would have otherwise been spent on activities that aren’t really making a difference. This innovative model is an industry first and will progressively be rolled out over the next 12 months.
See below an illustration of the technology and data solution that will enable digitization of our shared service functions:
Our solution realizes efficiency synergies within and across its industry verticals. Synergies occur when two-or-more portfolio companies have a similar need or a similar outcome that we can capture, codify, and scale. Examples of this include creating efficient organization structures at the portfolio company, vertical and 777 levels, leveraging procurement volumes across portfolio companies for improved pricing, and leveraging the Headspace model for digital-first shared service processes.
777 Partners instituted a rigorous and systematic approach to unlocking synergy, both between portfolio companies within a sector and also across sectors.
Our investment professionals and operating partners work with portfolio companies to ‘think upstream’ and to help them change or grow their businesses. They do this by breaking down as many of the walls that are holding people back – by sharing ideas, collaboratively problem-solving, and combining efforts to create leverage points.
We are creating proven playbooks that harness our cumulative learnings in a catalog of digital assets that are available to our entire portfolio of companies.
Examples of this would be sports where we exploit performance analytics, develop common revenue growth strategies around merchandising and procurement, share digital assets, and leverage operational and cost metrics to optimize our portfolio companies in a rapid way.
For many industries, data is the single most valuable asset and should be prioritized as highly as revenue, customer experience and profitability.
