Investing in Exceptional Founder-Led & Family-Owned Businesses
True Private Equity Partnerships
More than just capital, we are business partners committed to providing the strategic guidance and financial support that make a genuine difference for families, founders, and management teams – the “owner/operators.” Our approach provides the foundation for achieving a shared long-term vision of growth and success.
Our Investments Facilitate:
Inactive Partner Buyouts
Generational Business Transitions
Letter from Our Founders
Bringing on an outside partner is one of the biggest personal and professional decisions an owner/operator will make. With our entrepreneurial and family business roots, these are responsibilities we understand and commitments we are proud to stand behind.
– Kevin & Troy
The Carmelina Partnership Model is guided by a “win-together” philosophy that ensures we are a dependable, thoughtful, and additive strategic business partner that is just as invested in the success of your business as you are.
Unlike traditional private equity, we have no interest in “taking over” your business. We are investing in partnership with you, your business, its mission, and its people. We avoid short-term thinking and high levels of debt. We focus on the profitable growth of a business while respecting the unique culture that has allowed you to achieve success to date.
