Realizing Potential Through Partnership with Gilead Group

Investment partnerships are often measured against strict investment timelines. At Gilead Group, we understand that truly great ideas don’t always blossom as expected, even with the benefit of thorough analytical foresight. With agility, adaptation, and a willingness to see its partnerships through, Gilead Group offers purposeful strategic support and a long-term commitment to its portfolio companies.

For Gilead, partnerships must be grounded in meaningful mentorship and a shared vision. As conditions evolve, we collaborate on needed changes and work to seize new opportunities as they emerge. In some cases, growth is faster than expected. Gilead Group empowers its partner companies with strategic support and capital needed to capture new markets.

The efficacy of this approach is evident in the achievements of companies like Linxup and Joink. These partnerships achieved remarkable growth resulting in more significant capitalization from larger investment interests and healthy returns for Gilead Group. 

Linxup’s Accelerated Trajectory with Spectrum Equity

In February 2019, Linxup reached new heights in its journey of providing SaaS-based telematics and tracking solutions with an investment from Spectrum Equity. This renowned growth equity firm recognized Linxup’s potential and advantages in a growing market. The partnership opened new avenues for Linxup to reinforce its position as a leader in the industry.

“We’re extremely proud of how rapidly and profitably we’ve grown our business over the last several years, and we are thrilled that Spectrum Equity has validated our efforts with their investment,” said Paul Inman, then CEO of Agilis Systems.

Linxup’s intuitive platform, catering to various industries such as trucking, construction, and home services, has garnered a substantial user base. Gilead Group’s support, both financial and strategic, was instrumental in Linxup’s growth journey.
