Let’s go for the win, your way.

When our goals align, we can drive long-term success for founders and investors alike. We understand those goals are not purely financial. Maintaining your company’s culture and your legacy are requirements for success.

Teamwork gets it done.

You know your business better than anyone. We respect what you have built and the effort it took to get there. Black Lake Capital will help you realize the untapped potential you see in your business. We provide real-world expertise in strategy, growth capital, systems implementation, and financial structuring.

WHO WE ARE

 

Black Lake Capital is a private investment firm partnering with technology and innovation-enabled businesses generating $2-12M in annual cash flow. From 100% buyouts to equity recapitalizations with majority or substantial minority positions, BLC has flexibility to meet your business transition needs.

Our team shares your enthusiasm for your business. Your team and culture are the building blocks for our future success, and Black Lake Capital connects the big picture vision with the operational planning required to achieve your goals. Ultimately, our planning is putting the right people in the right roles and providing them with the resources needed to achieve their best.

OUR CRITERIA

Black Lake Capital invests in majority and substantial minority equity recapitalizations in leading middle-market technology and innovation-enabled businesses. We guide niche companies to achieve the same success they have experienced close to home within the broader market – whether that be a larger geography, a more complete suite of products and services, or a broader customer base. With each partner, we find ways to enhance business development, introduce new products and services, and free up management resources to focus on growth.

WHY US

Our core values drive our successful partnerships with management of leading technology and innovation-enabled businesses.

FLEXIBILITY

FLEXIBILITY

There is no “one-size-fits-all” investment solution. After studying a company and its previous successes, we work with the business and our network of resources to help provide strategic insight which will lead to accelerated growth. Furthermore, we have the flexibility to craft a transaction that meets your current liquidity needs while allowing you to capitalize on the long-term potential we unlock together.

TEAMWORK

TEAMWORK

A company’s culture is its fingerprint, a fingerprint which we endeavor to maintain. Its founders have put their blood, sweat, and tears to achieve its success while imprinting their own personal stamp on the company culture. We work within these relationships while empowering your business to reach its full potential. Our role is strategic oversight, not day-to-day decision making.

RESULTS

RESULTS

We provide the partnership, business tools and capital to enable your business to achieve our shared long-term goals. When the business wins, investors, founders, and employees share in that success.
