Blackford Capital believes that long-term value is created through operational effectiveness, business model innovation, and effective execution. We are patient, long-term investors and understand that it takes time, effort and resources to build companies of lasting value.
We believe the most compelling opportunities to create significant value are found in companies that need new capital, modified ownership structures, and additional infrastructure to support their growth initiatives. Therefore, we look for companies that have the potential to grow rapidly through a combination of acquisitions, internal organic growth, or improved operational effectiveness.
Blackford brings additional capital and effective management expertise to its portfolio companies. Our team has 100 years collective investing and operating experience in the lower middle market. The firm’s investor and management teams include some of the nation’s most accomplished and respected executives, consultants and academics.
