Growing Businesses Through
Leadership & Capital
Crimson Ventures is a Management Consulting and Private Investment company with over 30 years of experiences assisting companies at key inflection points such as hyper-growth, capital raising, M&A transactions, business exits, turnarounds, and more. Our founder, Rob Walker, and his team have been directly responsible for the formation and/or growth of numerous early-stage ventures and for operational improvement in many later-stage businesses.
Whether your business is going through a ‘once in a business’ event or you want a partner who will be there for your growth and transition, Crimson Ventures may be able to assist.
Crimson Ventures focuses on corporate finance, strategic planning and operations. With
predecessor companies, Crimson’s history dates back to 1993 with broad-based experiences across
multiple industries and with companies of varying stages of development. Our services include:
• Raising venture capital
• Managing expansion during hyper-growth
• Hiring your successor
• Selling your business
• Working with commercial banks
• Responding to new market paradigms like disruptive technologies, increased competition, etc.
• Executing M&A transactions
• Serving on your Board of Directors
• Enacting business turn-around
Not every organization is properly equipped to address major change and would therefore benefit from experienced, outside resources and points-of-view like those offered by our management consulting team.
The derivation of the Crimson name comes from several key influences in Mr. Walker’s life and business career. These include Samford University (newspaper is The Crimson, undergrad ‘90), Harvard University (Crimson is the mascot, MBA ’96), immersion in a tradition of championship college football (Crimson Tide) and a recognition of those that shed blood for our freedom and eternal life (Isaiah 1:18, I Peter 1:18-19, Elvina Hall’s 1865 song Jesus Paid It All, and our U.S. Military and supporting organizations).
