Our Mission

Accelerate Strategic Growth

About Us

We have a passion for helping management accelerate the growth of lower middle market services companies

Longshore Capital Partners invests alongside founders and management teams in businesses with durable value propositions in growing end-markets. We purchase control positions of services companies in North America with EBITDA ranging from $5 million to $15 million. Our thematic driven investment process is targeted toward specific industries and subsectors within the broader services landscape, including revenue cycle management, technology-enabled business process outsourcing, payments, managed services, and human capital services.

We use a collaborative approach to execute a shared value creation plan with our management teams during ownership. Our investing framework accelerates growth, judiciously expands infrastructure, and strategically positions each platform as an attractive asset for future buyers. Each tailored vision of growth is anchored by the following tenets: revenue enhancement, acquisition strategy, management talent expansion, and productivity implementations.

Our investment philosophy builds lasting businesses in defined market niches alongside best-in-class management teams. We do not rely on financial engineering to achieve returns. We believe our prudent use of leverage limits distractions across economic cycles and optimizes our return horizon without assuming excessive risk.
