Investment Approach

We invest in people. Our goal is to identify and partner with management teams of profitable, growing companies with proven business models capable of becoming industry leaders. We focus on companies with revenues ranging between $4 million to $30 million, which are generally underserved by the traditional private equity investment community.

Creating a Partnership

We work closely with management to understand a company’s strengths, weaknesses, and objectives prior to investing. Our process allows us to understand how the team thinks and reacts to a changing business environment. One we make an investment, we proactively work with management to achieve the company’s long-term strategic objectives.

Rewarding the Team

We know that a company’s success depends upon exceptional leadership by the management team. Accordingly, we provide management with a significant stake in the successful performance of the company.

Long-Term View

We know that it takes time to build a successful business. While we will eventually monetize our investment, we do not let a preconceived timeline determine the timing of our exit.
