Forward. Together.

Working in close partnership with entrepreneurs and managers, we invest in technology-enabled and service-based businesses with exceptional prospects for growth.

Our Approach


Baum Capital Partners is a private investment firm that provides equity capital and know-how in support of dynamic companies in the lower middle market. Working in close partnership with entrepreneurs and managers, we have a passion for helping promising companies reach their potential, and the resources required to make it happen.

Focus

Greater focus fosters greater success. We believe in investing where market opportunities align with our depth of experience — closely-held companies in the lower middle market with technology-enabled or service-based business models.

Collaboration

True partnerships are based on the alignment of interests. We believe in developing a shared vision for the future and working in collaboration with management to achieve our common goals.

Resources

Building businesses is the best way to build value. We believe in bringing the right tools for the job and supporting the development of each business with deep expertise, strategic resources and additional capital.

Character

Relationships are our greatest asset. We believe in honoring each relationship with respect, honesty, and hard work, even in difficult circumstances.

Investment Interests


The founders of Baum Capital Partners have invested in and advised privately-held businesses for over 20 years. We focus on opportunities where a financial partner is being sought to solve a corporate or ownership need, including investments to support growth, generational ownership transfers and management-backed recapitalizations.
