Vopne Capital has launched its first fund with $20 million. The firm is focused on acquisitions, recapitalizations and financings of companies in the lower middle market and businesses with EBITDA of $1 million to $5 million.
Vopne Capital, a San Francisco based private investment firm, announced today the launch of its first fund, Vopne Capital Fund I, with $20 million of equity capital. Vopne Capital is focused on acquisitions, recapitalizations and financings of companies in the lower middle market, businesses with EBITDA of $1-5 million.
“We’re excited to launch the fund,” said Jim Bloom, Managing Partner at Vopne Capital. “The lower middle market contains great companies whose access to capital is limited. Vopne Fund I provides us with dedicated capital for small business owners looking to sell, recapitalize or transition ownership of their company.” Vopne is actively seeking investment opportunities in manufacturing, healthcare, industrial and business services. Vopne targets transactions requiring total capital – equity and debt – of $5-25 million.
Jim Bloom, Founder and Managing Partner at Vopne Capital, brings significant investment and senior executive operating experience to the fund. Prior to founding Vopne, Mr. Bloom was a Principal at Tinicum Capital Partners, a $1.5 billion private investment fund. Before Tinicum, he held senior management positions in operations, sales, marketing and strategy, including: head of Strategy & Business Development and member of the buyout management team at FEI Women’s Health (acquired by Barr Laboratories), head of Sales & Marketing at ShareBuilder Corp. (acquired by ING Direct), Director of Operations at ADAC (acquired by Philips), and a consultant at Bain & Company. Mr. Bloom earned his MBA at Stanford University and his BA at Colorado College.
