It’s EIQ that matters

Over the years, we have honed our Entrepreneurial IQ (EIQ) to best fit our management teams. In the pre-middle market, this EIQ allows us to fluently converse, provide resources and understand the needs of entrepreneurial businesses.

Our mindset matches those of our entrepreneurial management teams because we are entrepreneurs too.

We’ve been there. Seen that. Experience matters.

Driven by our passion to help management teams grow, we’re available both day and night. If it keeps our management teams awake, we’re on it.

We provide intelligence, not interference.

We’re not your usual private equity firm. We roll up our sleeves and get to work.

We have a bias for action. Big problems don’t phase us; inaction does.

For companies on our radar, we believe the best measurement of whether or not a private equity firm is the right match is a high Entrepreneurial IQ (EIQ): the ability to converse, provide resources and understand the needs of entrepreneurs.

Our mindset matches those of our entrepreneurial management teams.

We’re not your usual private equity firm. For starters, we roll up our sleeves and get to work.

Driven by our passion to help management teams grow, we’re available both day and night.

We’ve been there. Seen that. As a result, we provide intelligence not interference.

If it keeps our management teams awake at night, we’re on it.

We have a bias for action. Big problems don’t phase us; inaction does.

To Our Current and Future Partners…

We know it is difficult to tell one private equity firm from another – and we hope our website has given you a glimpse into what sets us apart. We have built a firm focused on entrepreneurs; one that understands you and the challenges you face growing your business.

Our vast experience working with many teams in a wide variety of industries has taught us that the path to success is rarely a straight line. We’ve seen the obstacles, we’ve overcome the roadblocks, and we’re eager to help you and your team build a business that can be successful over the long term. We have stayed true to this mission since 1998, working with our management teams side-by-side as partners, helping build value and always looking ahead.

While we like to roll up our sleeves and get to work, we don’t believe hard work and fun are mutually exclusive. We genuinely love working with management teams that are passionate about their businesses and we know that enjoying the process drives successful outcomes. Every day we strive to be the private equity firm that entrepreneurs are excited to work with and investors respect.

We are proud and honored to work with each and every one of our management teams, and look forward to making many more partnerships along the way.
