Don't just get funding. Make an impact.
Atlas Capital can give you a new direction for your investment with expert advice.
Atlas Capital, LLC is a private equity firm which employs a hybrid investment strategy, investing equity in both expansion stage IT companies as well as traditional manufacturing, real estate and service businesses with growth opportunities. The common denominator? A driven entrepreneurial management team coupled with market proven product, technologies or services. Growth potential – either through acquisition or fueled internally is an important criteria for private equity investments.
Management and their ability to generate a high return is key to any venture. We look for ventures which can generate a return on equity in excess of 20%, which can earn us at minimum $100,000 per year within 24 months, and which typically need funding from $100,000 to $2,000,000. We almost without exception look to fund hard assets and working capital, as opposed to paying operating expenses. We typically come in when there is a product that is generating revenue with the potential for more revenue, and not earlier when there is only an idea that might generate revenue in the future.
We look to both local and national markets depending on the product; however, our focus has typically been one where we look to keep a majority of our employees within the Greater Phoenix Area. We have done a deal where the company was based locally, but sold internationally. We routinely turn down opportunities which are out of state because our management team is local. We need to be in markets which are large enough to have a competitive advantage, but which are small enough that someone our size can compete on an equal footing.
Expertise Our expertise is in legal, technology, accounting, and funding. We typically handle everything but operating the actual business. Our strength is that most of our systems and a good number of our people are portable from business to business. You hit the ground running with the best possible IT, accounting, and legal support plus enough funding to capitalize on any opportunities. As a Quickbooks Pro-Advisor we can train, onboard, and help you work through most any problem. We are also available for consulting on complex litigation or expert witness testimony. We both get the benefit of shared expertise going into a new market with high potential returns through our joint connections, expertise, and knowledge. We are here to help high potential start-ups get going on their accounting as well as talking through upgrades at more mature enterprises.
Atlas Capital, LLC has experience with funding ventures as diverse as hospitality related businesses, check cashing, pawn shops, real estate fix and flip, real estate rentals, a general contractor, the #1 wide format digital printing software company worldwide, the #1 mid-range bakery software provider, and many others. With over 25 years of success in the Greater Phoenix area, we are your local presence with connections on every level that have taken years to build up. We provide the back end, technology, funding and local expertise – you provide everything else.

A true Phoenix native, Alfonso Larriva has been in the Phoenix area since birth. He attended Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix, and then went on to obtain an AB in Economics from Stanford University, and an MBA from Stanford immediately after.

While he did work for a majority of these ventures either full or part time, Mr. Larriva's strengths lie in setting up systems that allow others to work more efficiently and thereby helping them to reach their potential.
