INVESTMENT CAPITAL FOR GROWTH
We're investors within two portfolio segments, e-commerce/tech and real estate development.
Our recent tech investments include early to mid-stage pre-IPO growth capital for disruptive companies ranging from AI to large old-school industries such as banking and healthcare.
In real estate, we've provided mid-stage growth capital in the national co-working space as well as acquisition and re-development funding for 3.5+ million sq. ft. of traditional projects including multi-family residential, self storage and hotels.
Our funding includes advisory support which leverages our experience and relationships to help accelerate success. We invest in U.S. based businesses and fund opportunities solely in our two portfolio segments:
DEEP ROOTS AS ENTREPRENEURS
START-UP > LBO > BUYOUT > PUBLIC > START-UP > BUYOUT >
Over 30 years building products and leading companies has connected our lives with people and teams and experiences that keep us very motivated to replicate those feelings on the road ahead.
