Investing in the future of business
We invest in lower-middle market United States-based companies operating within the healthcare, education, energy and environmental services sectors as well as those providing quality jobs and services to underserved communities.
As a hands-on investor, we work in close partnership with the entrepreneurs we back. Our team (and network of advisers) have extensive experience of helping companies to scale. We proactively engage with management on social and environmental issues, helping them not just to mitigate risks but to identify value creation opportunities.
We believe the most successful companies of the next decade will be those who have a positive impact on people or the planet.
By finding commercial solutions to pressing challenges like climate change, ageing populations or the rise in chronic health conditions, companies can open up lucrative new markets and tap into unmet demand. It will also help them attract better talent, customers and partners, because increasingly, these are the kind of companies people want to work with and buy from.
Through fundamental analysis within our four themes, we identify the sectors and sub-sectors most likely to benefit from these long-term growth trends, and seek out mission-aligned mid-market companies who share our vision. As a team, we’re passionate about helping these businesses succeed at scale.
