Investment firm based just outside Chicago, IL. We are a specialized investment group focused on identifying investment opportunities in consumer products and services primarily in the household, outdoor, pet and personal care segments. We believe these segments have been overlooked and disenfranchised by traditional venture capital firms. Because these segments have been largely ignored by most capital providing sources, there are hungry yet qualified company founders who can greatly benefit from financial & managerial support thus presenting attractive investment opportunities. We look for startup companies that will become major industry participants that are built around innovative products, unique services and strategies coupled with dynamic, passionate founders that create new markets or reshape existing ones.

I am a former private equity executive who has been living and working in the Chicago area for over 25 years. I'm married with 3 kids living in the western suburbs of Chicago. Having helped buy, grow and sell companies for over 10 years, I'm very familiar with the types of operational systems and improvements needed in growing businesses. I previously worked for middle market private equity firms located in Chicago and was formerly an investment banker. Most recently I've been helping my family run a hospital and 4 colleges in India. I received my BSBA in Finance & Accounting from Washington University in St. Louis in 2001 and received my MBA from the University of Chicago with concentrations in Finance & Entrepreneurship. Given my background, I can be a hands-on investor when appropriate and if the right opportunity exists, can try to attract more capital.
