With a Chicago Focus and Global Reach Merrick looks for:
Value based leaders and entrepreneurs Based on the fundamental belief that significant intrinsic values transcend the leader of an organization to its stakeholders, Merrick explores the track record and value based philosophies of its staff, leaders and companies to assure the success of its investments.
Inefficiencies in marketplace Careful assessment combined with a unique insight of capital and vertical markets allows Merrick to identify and capitalize on opportunities, bridging the gap in technology through the complex landscape of current business practices.
Opportunities to apply internet portal technology Many industries can benefit from the application of internet portal technology to facilitate collaboration with trading partners in a private marketplace and to conduct pre-sales, order management and post sales transactions. Merrick will leverage portal technology to help companies create a 24x7 business environment which will enable them to have centralized control, delegated power, multi-lingual and multi currency interfaces as well as a global reach.
Commitment to Chicago Chicago is a cornerstone of proven corporate success, world class universities and users of technology. Massive resources, a plethora of talent, and home of numerous industry icons, make Chicago an ideal backdrop for the commercialization of ideas and concepts to be promulgated nationally and around the world.
