Corridor Capital is a private equity fund providing more than just investment capital to US-based lower middle market companies. We believe we are the most actively engaged private equity partner across strategy, operations and finance in the lower middle market. Corridor is able to provide an exceptional level of support for our portfolio companies through the combined efforts of our seasoned investment team and dedicated in-house operations team. Every member of the Corridor Capital team has experience working not only as investors, but also in operating roles.
Through our collaborative, highly active investing approach, we work alongside management to build the infrastructure and efficiencies necessary for sustainable scalable growth. Corridor believes our portfolio companies benefit from value-added activities such as: worldwide business development, financial controls design, customer profitability analysis, operations restructuring, systems implementation and key management team recruitment. Our broad investor base includes more than 100 top executives across a vast array of industries and disciplines, a unique resource that Corridor is able to access for the benefit of our portfolio companies and their teams.
We focus on control investments in specialty manufacturing, business services, environmental services and other defensive sectors. Corridor’s operational resources allow us to invest in both healthy, growing businesses, as well as more complex situations, particularly those requiring growth support or operational or financial engagement. We prefer to work with entrepreneurs and family-owned businesses that have not yet realized the benefits of hands-on, institutional ownership. We are honored that sellers often roll over a meaningful portion of their equity in an effort to benefit from the Corridor approach, giving owners the potential for a subsequent liquidity event after creating significant value together.
