Whitestone Investment Network (WIN) strives to identify small and mid-cap companies in which it can accumulate a meaningful equity interest and help those businesses improve their market value.
With more than 125 years of combined experience in entrepreneurism, corporate management and finance, WIN’s management team has a hands-on approach and can offer client companies a wide range of consulting services to support their growing success.
Whitestone Investment Network Corp. (“Whitestone” or “WIN”), was formed in November 2014 for the purpose of identifying and capitalizing on undervalued assets. These assets will typically be in the form of privately held small to mid-size companies.
The primary objective is to invest in or acquire targeted companies and then employ the resources of WIN’s seasoned management team to build asset value and strengthen WIN’s ownership position. With WIN as a major shareholder, client companies can take advantage of our broad range of business and financial advisory services which include: strategic planning, corporate restructuring, branding and marketing, and introductions to new sources of capital.
Our long term vision is to grow WIN into a successful holding company which limits the risk to WIN’s shareholders while giving them the opportunity to participate in the ownership of a number of high growth companies across different industries.
