About ThoughtStorm

TSC serves clients by creating sustainable competitive advantages for our clients through delivering high-payoff strategic advice and leadership. We accomplish this mission by focusing on client needs and fundamental business principles.


ThoughtStorm Strategic Capital is a boutique investment bank and advisory firm focused on increasing returns on invested capital for our clients. We concentrate our efforts in three areas: mergers and acquisitions, strategy, and interim management services. We embrace high standards, attention to detail, and discipline in our analysis, planning, and execution. Based on the East Coast, our clients are found across the country, including California, Massachusetts, and New York.

Many of our clients are lower-middle market private and public companies, with $5-50 million in revenue. On strategy projects in particular, we often serve clients with substantially larger revenue, e.g., a global logistics company with over $3 billion in revenue. While we typically operate at the CEO/CFO level, we have served investors, shareholders, and owners of these businesses and can even provide outside advice directly to the board of directors or audit committee in connection with strategic financial transactions.

TSC was co-founded by Michael Princi and Rick Colosimo in 2000, during the height of the dotcom boom. Surrounded by companies that had meteoric growth expectations to justify their astronomical valuations, the two founders saw that many companies had no concept of the rigorous analytics required to divine the market’s expectations or the disciplined approach required to meet those expectations for growing free cash flows.
