Investment Criteria

We typically invest in privately held or multi-generational family businesses with a solid foundation upon which to build. Niche expertise, a strong reputation, and solid customer relationships can lead to new opportunities to grow organically and through acquisition with the right partner.

Alignment of interests is a key tenet of our investments. We encourage management to remain investors and active business partners and enhance their expertise and experience with ours.

Investments in people, software and systems, and operations are supported with sales and marketing solutions that leverage digital technologies to drive revenue growth. These solutions are coupled with acquisition strategies that create more value for your customers and your company.
