Founded by Conrad Plimpton in 1975 to pursue entrepreneurship and innovation through investment and acquisition, we have been an active buy and hold investor for multiple decades partnering directly with entrepreneurs for long-term value creation. We focus on partnering with passionate individuals to build successful middle market companies in areas where we can provide unique strategic insights, industry knowledge, and managerial support.
By employing a flexible transaction and operating structure, we can tailor our approach to meet the needs and objectives of a particular company or situation. Furthermore, our unconstrained time horizons allow us to truly take a long-term approach whether it is multi-year, multi-decade, or multi-generational.
Our expertise and interests range from management succession and ownership transfer buyouts to angel and venture capital investing. As managers we have direct experience growing companies and providing leadership through critical transition phases. While we prefer to partner directly with motivated entrepreneurs, we embrace the opportunity to provide direct management during transition periods to ensure employee, business, and ownership needs are appropriately met and companies are positioned for long term success.
