Five Elms is a growth equity firm focused on providing capital to businesses in the financial services, media / information, and business services sectors.
Five Elms typically invests $1 million - $10 million for a minority ownership position in growth equity, secondary, and later-stage venture situations, but is also comfortable with full buyouts, PIPEs, and co-investments alongside its larger private equity peers. The firm has the ability to lead significantly larger transactions with the support of its co-investment pool from select limited partners.
The firm collaborates with strong management teams who are looking for a value-added partner to contribute financial, strategic, and operational resources. Five Elms believes in the value of long-term partnerships and works alongside entrepreneurs in a way that maximizes value for all shareholders while minimizing overall risk.
