About Corridor Capital

Corridor Capital provides far more than capital to US-based small companies—to our knowledge, we are the most actively engaged private equity partner across strategy, operations and finance. The Corridor team is comprised of pragmatic experienced operators who have managed businesses or divisions of companies; we are not a Wall Street firm.

Through our collaborative, highly active approach, we work alongside management to build the institutions and efficiencies necessary for sustainable scalable growth. Corridor’s portfolio companies benefit from value-added activities such as: worldwide business development, financial controls design, customer profitability analysis, operations restructuring, systems implementation and key management team recruitment. Our broad investor base includes over 150 top executives across a vast array of industries and disciplines, a unique resource we bring to benefit our portfolio companies and their teams.

We make control investments in specialty manufacturing, business services and environmental services industries. Corridor focuses on complex situations, particularly those requiring growth support or operational or financial engagement. We prefer to work with entrepreneurs and family-owned businesses that have not yet realized the benefits of hands-on, institutional ownership. We are honored that sellers often rollover a meaningful portion of their equity in an effort to benefit from the Corridor approach, giving owners access to a subsequent second liquidity event against significant value created together.
