Our Focus


The Partners of Lead Capital have been personally involved in the investment of over $230 million in more than 38 lower middle market businesses across a diverse range of industries nationwide. While we have a generalist approach to industries, the businesses we invest in tend to have few fixed assets, limited capital expenditure requirements, recurring revenues, sustainable profit margins and identified prospects for growth.


We are currently seeking opportunities to make controlling investments in owner recapitalizations, management buyouts, family succession transitions and corporate divestitures of companies with EBITDA of $1 million to $4 million. Our transaction process and structure provides business owners an orderly transition of their company's operations, personal liquidity and financial diversification, along with the opportunity for future financial participation via retained equity ownership.


We partner with entrepreneurs and business owners to diversify their personal net worth while transitioning their business to the next level. As such, we welcome situations that lack many of the systems, corporate governance controls, financial reporting, strategic plans, and management processes required of many private equity firms. We also welcome opportunities in regulated industries that require an experienced partner.


Successful entrepreneurs and business owners are passionate about their companies' future. We share that same passion. We partner with management and give them access to our capital, experience and strategic relationships. This partnership provides owners an orderly and defined transition and ensures that a sound plan is in place for continued success for their company and employees.
