Driving Capital

A Solid Approach to Capital

The Shamon Family Office is dedicated to identifying opportunities for investing within private and public entities via qualitative, value-based, principles-based approaches to operational businesses via injections of intellectual and relational capital, rather than merely the traditional investment of fiat-based, monied capital.

We invest these valuable forms of capital to drive a design-build process within businesses in various industries, including technology, onshore manufacturing, intellectual property based products and services, life sciences, wholesale, retail, real estate, and multiple products and services based entities, utilizing our unique, qualitative, business design methodologies, as bolstered by monied capital, as may be appropriate.

The true worth of each investment is identified and examined, so as to unearth previously undiscovered gems or misunderstood potential talent, from U.S. micro-cap public entities to venture-funded start-ups to challenged private-portfolio companies to novel-concept development, we seek investments that are ready, willing and able to allow for infusions of the most important kinds of capital:  knowledge and know-how applied thru critical thinking – this leads directly to real innovation and transformation.

We are focused upon private opportunities within the United States, and also have global private investments in Canada, Europe and Japan, as we access and engage global entrepreneurs and operators to help build the future thru both concept-based and system-based design thinking.

We seek to drive deal flow for increased U.S. investment opportunities including onshore traditional manufacturing and advanced materials, technology and private label, wholesale distribution within high-potential entities, assets and individuals throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe.

A Proven Collaborative Investment Strategy

Identifying and driving synergies between stakeholders and co-investors in a venture, established entity or turnaround, is a powerful investment thesis for true value creation. Our Family builds and unlocks value, while mitigating a multitude of risks, via the sharing of intellectual and knowledge capital to drive the performance of the business or asset together with all stakeholders.

The Family has diverse experience and expertise that allow powerful strategic, tactical and operational approaches to be analyzed and deployed, while working directly with co-investors, families and management, as well as the fund managers of challenged portfolio companies, all to drive performance.

In the world of private investments, individuals and families with specific domain knowledge are engaging their monied capital in direct investing or co-investing with other families, angels or funds, allowing for a dynamism of their integrated skills and strong relationships, leading to all Stakeholders leveraging this know-how and experience for shared success.

Active Advisory Investors

 Value Creation

Our Family drives real Value Creation by crafting an active advisory performance plan utilizing business design thru re-architecture of the entity’s products or services via a) the deconstruction of the product or service, and then b) the implementation of strategic and operational change and improvement to deliver instant worth which constitutes durable, sustained, long-term value creation for all stakeholders.

 A Culture of Doing

We deploy a hands-on approach, grounded upon a culture of doing, recognizing reality and competence, driven by substance over process and a mastery of business design and systems- based thought, from serving as active investors in established businesses to actual venture operators, as well as the many investment situations in between.

Value Plus

The heart of our value creation is the identification of all existing tangible and intangible assets, we then inject “value plus” contributions of knowledge capital and monied capital, as we execute rigorous and qualitative-quantitative and competitive-comparative analyses via the critical thinking of our independent, external eyes to make the entity better.

Dynamic Entrepreneurial Approach

Adding real value from the entrepreneurial expertise of individual investors to mapping strategy and operations, the success of an investment and an investment portfolio is driven via artful business design and multi-domain expertise, coupled with the requisite edge and focus of problem-solving competencies driven by the independence of true thought diversity.



We engage in an honest humanity in our dealings with businesses and stakeholders. This creates and engenders strong relationships based upon trust and fairness, which serves to create the structural underpinnings within the investment, the business and the stakeholders, leading to out-sized results of investment performance.

Due Diligence and Trust

Trust but verify, via qualitative and quantitative due diligence.  We look thru multiple prisms to recognize sight-lines to gain comprehension of our subject matter, entity, product or service – only then do we apply our capital, experience and know-how to make the entity or asset better.
