We engage with privately-owned and family-led businesses in the lower middle market with revenues between $1M and $50M.

Family-Led Companies

We work with Owners and CEOs of closely-held companies with mature businesses looking to innovate and strengthen the long-term legacy of the business. Your company may be facing disruption and you want to move from “defense” to “offense.” You want to be more innovative, leverage technology to support your goals, or evaluate strategic acquisitions. You take a long-view of sustainability to preserve your company’s ownership, make an impact, and transition the company successfully to the next generation.

Position your company for sustainable growth and value creation for the next generation.

Privately-Held Company
Founders, Entrepreneurs
& Owners

We work with Owners of closely-held companies looking to position their business for sale in 3-5 years and want to maximize their options. You’ve worked hard on your business and you want to be rewarded for your hard work. You might be facing market disruptions and regaining value is a key first step for business owners aiming to sell. Next is proving to buyers that the value will be sustained.

Position your company for growth by rebuilding value in your business and reducing risk.
