Good qualities in an active partner is very essential as well, do not ignore that.
In recent years, the highly competitive deal market has shifted the private equity industry’s emphasis away from financial engineering and put pressure on firms to drive operational value growth in their portfolio companies. As a result, operating partners, whose job is to facilitate on-the-ground value creation, have become key components of investment strategy for many firms. As the primary liaison between a private equity firm and its portfolio company, an operating partner ensures that the portfolio’s executive team has the people, processes, and tools it needs to meet the goals established by the PE firm’s investment thesis. Quite simply, former portfolio CEOs now working as operating partners probably know what it is like to be on the receiving end of poorly communicated plans or unreasonable demands, and this memory can inform their ability to set realistic expectations among the investment team, carefully socialize strategic changes in the portfolio company, and, most importantly, adapt both expectations and strategy to continually reflect on-the-ground realities.

Hi
Beautiful collections and it is clear that you have a knack for creative arts. I have a few questions for you. How long has this business been in operation? How much capital did you invest ? What is your profit margin? Who are your target group? How is the sale since COVID? Who has been marketing and doing the PR.? Hypothetically, If I am going to invest in you these are some of the questions I would asked. It's my money so I want to know how well you are stewarding it.
The person who partners with you must have an interest in the product and they would need to see a projection for say a year. Whilst I am not against getting a partner I would suggest try these options first
a)Why not create a website or an online store and display your products.
b) You can also become an Amazon or Ebay supplier. Check it out and let me know.

Would love to get some feedback on the questions I asked
