Trusted Since 1998
Founded in 1998 by a young group of ambitious entrepreneurs, QuadTwo was named for the upper-right quadrant of the 2×2 matrix, which classifies individuals and entities that are the best, the industry-leaders, and the category killers. Best-selling author Stephen Covey also memorialized the upper-right quadrant of the matrix to be occupied by tasks that are non-critical, but highly important, like long-term strategic planning. Our founders felt like this was what we do best. We focus on tasks that are often overlooked, but critical to success.
As an experienced private capital investment firm, we embody both descriptions in our active management approach. The money we invest is ours, so we want to get it right.
Much More than Money
Passionate about building and growing successful companies, QuadTwo forms long-lasting partnerships with entrepreneurs and management teams, helping principal partners structure, position, and manage their entities to maximize shareholder and stakeholder value.
Portfolio companies benefit from the collective expertise of our proven leadership team, which has a history of building their own private equity-based businesses. Therefore, we truly understand the investment process from both sides of the table. Plus, because we invest our own money in our clients, true success is only achieved when our portfolio companies win.
Based on honesty, integrity, and relationships, QuadTwo Capital is more than a source of private capital. We’re your business partner.
