Lateral Investment Management


Lateral Investment Management, a private credit firm which provides growth capital to independent, middle-market businesses, was urgently looking for industry analyses on a variety of niche sectors and needed experienced freelance strategy consultants to conduct each analysis.

Graphite Solution

Within 48 hours of Lateral’s posting, Graphite connected the firm with six consultants, all with top-tier strategy consulting backgrounds, to lead the individual market studies. The consultants dove deep into each sector and presented their analysis to Lateral within two weeks.


It was refreshing to have access to professionals with niche domain expertise through the Graphite network. We were able to hire multiple consultants in a very short period of time and each delivered high-end work products while meeting our tight deadlines.
