Introducing the Private Equity Value Creation Podcast!

Those of you in private equity understand that transformation is the key to differentiated alpha–and essential to generating top quartile returns. But how do you actually drive consistent and continual transformation? The Private Equity Value Creation Podcast answers this crucial question by talking to those that have been successful with this.

There are a lot of podcasts out there, but there aren’t many speaking to those exclusively within the P.E. industry and ecosystem. Many business podcasts are hosted by people outside of the industry and the content is aimed just to inform the curious. One of our key differentiators is our insider perspective as business school professors, IT solution providers and private equity insiders. The LAB Podcast is hosted by Scott Estill (Managing Partner at Lancor) and Nick Creasy (Managing Director at Resourcive). 

Our goal is to share information and insights that will impact both C-Suite executives and private equity professionals. Since we launched, we have heard from these two groups thanking us for speaking to them directly and delivering the actionable ideas and advice they are now utilizing in their own companies. 

Each episode goes behind the scenes with business executives that are operating on the front lines for private equity’s value creation and operational goals. We speak to executives who have created transformation, and we dive into the times they made it work–as well as the times they failed. We find out the attributes it takes to be successful in different leadership roles. We discuss the financial acumen needed to see where the opportunities can be found, how to leverage PE partnerships to build successful businesses, and EQ/IQ methodologies. And that’s just the beginning… 

We are also talking about the difference between reactive and proactive approaches to deal flow and value creation. Through our Lancor Advisory Business (“LAB”), we often use a proactive approach to helping private equity funds discover and evaluate forthcoming deals. We do this through access to leading executives in various industries to determine what assets and industries are the most likely to drive outsized returns consistent with one’s stated objectives. The LAB podcast takes our investment advisory approach and shares it with a wider audience.

Lastly, the podcast is designed with your time in mind. Each episode is just 20 minutes for maximum impact on minimum time.. You can find the LAB podcast on Spotify Podcasts. We can’t wait for you to listen. We’d love to hear what you think! Reach out and let us know.
