what we do

We invest in companies that have hidden potential. We partner with strong operators that have the desire to build multi-million dollar enterprises through high volume M&A. We invest capital, offer strategic guidance, and provide resources that position managing teams to achieve scale.

We believe the difference between a small business and a multi-million dollar enterprise is 10% ability and 90% desire. We call ourselves “financial sponsors”, because we support the goals and aspirations of the managing team. We know finance and leave operations to the operators we sponsor.


Who we are

The Lorean Group is a private investment firm based in Philadelphia, PA. The firm is led by a team of experienced investors that have a background in direct investment, business strategy, and leadership. The investment team is thesis driven, focusing investment and operational energy on a few niche, highly fragmented industries.

Lorean is professionalizing the process of taking pre-institutional companies into the lower middle market. Lorean is most frequently one of the first sources of institutional capital for the companies it targets. Lorean investors believe outsized returns can be generated by taking advantage of the valuation expansion that occurs from moving from sub-institutional to institutional. Lorean executes on a high volume buy-and-build strategy for each platform investment with a target of growing and positioning companies to achieve their highest value.
