Blue Point’s portfolio operations team has resources that any entrepreneur interested in scaling their business would be thrilled to access. They deliver real value at the strategic level and across functions. Lastly, I want to express gratitude to my Stax colleagues globally and the senior leadership team for this incredible journey together.”
