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. 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.
