Each year, Evolution Capital Partners hosts its Leadership Summit and Annual Meeting in support of our growing list of active partner companies and investors. This year’s summit, held at our headquarters in Cleveland, OH, brought together our largest group of partner companies to date, allowing us to share in each other’s accomplishments, and explore new ways to create an even more successful 2017.
The 2016 Leadership Summit was led by EOS Implementer Rene Boer, who guided us through a series of discussions that touched on each point of The Five Pillars of Business Freedom. During these discussions, our group of business leaders presented a thorough review of what has worked and what hasn’t worked over the past year, and gave every member an opportunity to collaborate and share ideas on priming their organizations, as well as how Evolution can better help in the year ahead.
Mr. Boer had previously joined us on our radio show, The Second Stage, to talk through how to make management meetings more meaningful. Using this same approach at the summit, Mr. Boer helped us explore strategies and best practices that have helped each of our companies thrive, with an emphasis on “always looking for a better way” to further build on these successes.
2016 was a momentous year for Evolution Capital and its partners, as three of our current companies were listed as honorees on Inc. magazine’s 2016 Inc. 5000 List, where they received national recognition for their fiscal and professional achievements. These included present partners and attendees Lewellyn Technology, Heavy Equipment Colleges of America, and named to the list for the second year in a row, ROI Networks.
In addition to the annual gathering being a chance for our business leaders to share ideas, the Evolution Capital team also used the opportunity to learn more from our partners as we help each other past the hurdles of growing second stage companies—both now and in the future—and through to the next phase.
As 2016 ends, we look forward to our continued partnerships with these leaders, and deeply appreciate all their contributions to the summit, their companies and employees, as well as the communities they operate in and serve. In the end, it’s only through this supportive culture and solid relationships that we gain such extraordinary confidence that 2017 will be another landmark year for Evolution Capital, and for every one of our valued partners.
