We have found we are most effective when we are the lead and largest investor.
F Street Capital focuses on private equity investments in existing businesses that need financial and management enhancement to maximize full market potential. We are not industry focused, but enable investment when we have confidence in the entrepreneur, are excited by the product or service concept, and believe there is an attractive growth scenario. We enjoy the opportunity to form a true partnership with the founders and management teams of our companies, rolling up our sleeves so that we can have maximum impact on their paths to success. This involvement can take many forms beyond just injecting capital; we work closely with companies to hone their business models, implement scale through business partnerships, develop infrastructure, broaden hiring choices, and share our experiences in growing the product or service.
