WINNING TOGETHER.

We’re a different kind of investment firm. We help transform growing companies through hard work, partnerships grounded in shared values, and a unique Gridiron culture that comes from hands-on experience building and running small businesses.

POWERFUL STRATEGY. RELENTLESS EXECUTION.

We work in partnership with management teams and founders to build market-leading businesses, creating more value for customers, employees, managers, and investors.

The game plan looks different for each business, but it’s always based on a proven combination of investment philosophy and repeatable processes.

We call it the Gridiron Playbook.

WE RALLY BEHIND YOUR STRENGTHS.

“Hard work, honesty, perseverance, and a deep desire to win”. These four principles define Gridiron and the companies that we partner with. We have found that extraordinary success comes from building partnerships with people who believe in these values as much as we do.

LET’S TALK IN TEN YEARS.

At Gridiron, we think and act like entrepreneurs and family business owners, building long-term relationships through trust and respect. Our family is full of past owners and executives who return to participate in future businesses as executives, investors, and board members. So let’s talk today. If we share a vision for an opportunity, we’re confident we’ll be talking in ten years, too.

WE’RE COLLABORATIVE.

As a team of former operators and entrepreneurs, we know what it takes to run successful businesses on a day-to-day basis. We don’t just help companies grow with capital; we bring on-the-ground skills but also value business owners’ and management’s experience and know-how.

Who We Are

WE’RE INNOVATIVE.

With experience in operations, business strategy, supply chain management, new product innovation, data analytics, digital marketing, sourcing, marketing, and more, our team has the experience to create powerful solutions to diverse business challenges.

What We Do

WE LIKE TO LET OUR PARTNERS SPEAK FOR US.
Behind the scenes, the Gridiron team, they actually go quite deep in terms of understanding the business and the space we operate in. It’s like we have an extended support team of people that understand the industry, know what the competitors are doing, and think about ways to grow the business both organically and with acquisitions.
