Why Crucible?

Mainstream assessment tools are designed to maximize their addressable markets, and, are therefore not custom-crafted for private equity. Sponsors struggle to extract relevant insights from many of these reports.

Assessment Services is nearly a $10 billion industry, yet portfolio company executive derailment persists at an historic high. Derailment costs sponsors their most valuable resource, time, which depresses IRR and limits MOIC.

Number of US-backed PE-companies is doubling every 10 years while the talent pool is growing at 3% annually. This fact means that private equity will have to hire deeper into the talent pool which raises additional investment risk.

The Crucible offers insights into how candidates’ profiles translate into a private equity environment - both individually and as a team.

Our reporting and insights can be custom-tailored for any sponsor's unique brand of governance and behavioral profiling.
