Who is TenX Ventures?
TenX Ventures LLC is a privately held firm dedicated to building and nurturing businesses using principles based on Lean ('Toyota Production System'). Appropriately applied, such principles drive increased profitability and growth. TenX achieves this through three interrelated business areas:
1) Acquisitions: TenX Ventures partners with management and financial sponsors to acquire firms in targeted industries where Lean systems can drive value growth. We source proprietary transactions, structure and negotiate the purchase and financing and take a highly active role in the firms we acquire. Value is created both through the unique characteristics of the lean based acquisition and through rule-breaking change, leading to greater returns on invested capital than in more traditionally operated corporations.
2) Consulting: TenX Ventures provides consulting services to enable breakthrough change in firms.
3) Due Diligence: TenX Ventures provides operations due diligence services to Private Equity Groups, to advise on operations, business systems and the upside potential of their target firms.
What is Lean
The Lean Enterprise is a business system for organizing and managing product development, operations, and supplier and customer relations that requires less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time to provide products that conform to the precise customer desires. Lean originated with Henry Ford and was adopted, and perfected, by Toyota after World War II. While many understand its value on the shop floor, the true power of Lean is unleashed when it is deployed enterprise-wide.
