Decatur Road Capital’s mission is to buy a single business and manage it for the long-term, building on the foundation laid by the previous owner.
Decatur Road Capital is not a private equity firm with the goal of cutting costs, adding restrictive levels of debt, and flipping the business. And, we are not a strategic buyer with the goal of breaking up the company and absorbing parts of it into a larger corporation. We are entrepreneurs committed entirely to building one business as our sole focus.
We are the right path for an owner who wishes to gain liquidity and take a step back from day-to-day management—but who cares about the future of their business and employees after they sell.
