Our Difference

Arbor Capital’s unique philosophy differentiates us from purely financial, institutional or lifestyle buyers. As a team of entrepreneurs, we seek to distinguish ourselves along several key dimensions:

Arbor Capital Difference

Our Structure

Arbor Capital does not operate like a private equity firm. We pride ourselves on the flexibility we offer to owners and entrepreneurs. Additionally, we understand the sensitive and sometimes complex dynamics involved in a liquidity event. We’re flexible and experienced in leading thoughtful growth investments that maximize financial value for existing owners while providing enhanced professional opportunities for employees.

Trust & Integrity

We seek to invest in companies with a corporate conscience. We understand the sensitivity surrounding employees, customers and the greater community and will conduct a quick and confidential diligence process that minimally affects your business. An honest and transparent partnership is the cornerstone of our business dealings.

Confidence & Capital

We are a private company with funding from a small set of seasoned investors and business operators. Our approach is based on simplicity and mutual respect. You can be confident that we will maintain clear communication throughout the due diligence process and that we will offer a fair price. We prefer to move quickly and value the benefits that come from a smooth transaction for all parties involved.

Dedicated Management Experience

We are a skilled group of investors, entrepreneurs and operators with decades of experience growing owner operated, start-up, and family owned businesses. There is no pre-determined investment holding period. We acquire one business at a time and one principal will lead the day-to-day management responsibilities after the acquisition is complete.
