WHO THINK LIKE
INVESTMENT CAPITAL FOR GROWTH
We're investors who provide funding to help accelerate growth in e-commerce businesses and real estate development. Our typical investment is structured as mezzanine financing - subordinated debt with an equity position - but we're flexible in our approach. Our funding includes advisory support that leverages our experience and relationships - reducing the need for ancillary services and speeding up success.
We invest in U.S. based businesses led by full-time management 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.
