Craftsmen of Capital

In an era in which “scalability” is considered an essential element of business success, we shift our focus in the other direction. At Cranganore, we work with a diverse group of clients on a custom basis, using benchmade approaches to help them achieve their investment and commercial objectives.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.

Ernst Friedrich Schumacher

Part of our inspiration comes from Ernst Friedrich Schumacher’s book, “Small Is Beautiful: Economics As If People Mattered,” arguably one of the most influential economics books of the twentieth century. Our own experience in financial services attests to the ups-and-downs of business cycles and the havoc they can impose on our clients. We operate in the world of high risk, but our style is oddly conservative in approach and recommendation.

At Cranganore, our efforts span the complex and usual. Ready-made guidelines are ill-suited for our client projects. Because we make our mark with the unconventional, we are best known for our range of talents, rather than expertise in a specific industry. Metaphorically, our executives are glassmakers and gunsmiths, as well as cobblers and cordwainers. We believe that approach works best in global markets where businesses can be less stratified in their activities than they are in the United States.

This site provides a glimpse of our firm behind the showcase of industry conferences and the bravado of tombstone advertising. We excel in the solitude of our workshop, situated at the crossroads of emerging markets and venture capital.
