Where We Focus

Where We Specialize

  • We partner with B2B service providers that offer a wide range of professional services and tech-enabled solutions. We specialize in helping service-based companies strategically deploy capital investments and implement proven operational strategies to drive profitability, enhance technology capabilities, and streamline operations – all while keeping the customer experience front and center. When partnering with companies in this space, we look for high revenue visibility, such as long tenured customer relationships, long-term contracts, monthly subscriptions, or retainer agreements.

  • We partner with producers, distributors, and fabricators across a variety of end-markets. We specialize in helping these companies by investing in high ROI initiatives, implementing key operational strategies to drive efficiencies, introduce new product lines, expand into adjacent markets, accelerate product development, and improve logistics, inventory management practices, and on-time delivery performance.

  • We partner with a wide-range of workplace safety, compliance, and professional development solution providers. We specialize in helping compliance-centric companies invest in additional education, training, and compliance capabilities to meet rising customer demands, address evolving government regulations, and minimize risks associated with non-compliance and safety lapses.
