About Our Private Equity

Tecum Equity is a multi-family office representing several small to medium-sized family offices and high-net-worth investors primarily with a background in investing, owning, and operating businesses. These families and investors are seeking direct exposure to private equity investments, curated to respective backgrounds, operating backgrounds, and expertise. Tecum Equity seeks to invest in lower middle-market businesses primarily in the food and beverage, high-value niche manufacturing, industrial services, and value-added distribution sectors. We seek control equity positions in businesses with $2 million to $12 million of EBITDA. As a multi-family office, Tecum Equity has a long term investment horizon and takes a patient approach to build equity value in the businesses we acquire.

We seek to function as a value-added resource and work collaboratively with our portfolio companies. Tecum and its network provide oversight in the areas of strategic planning, business, and financial management, operational improvements, technology, and add-on acquisitions. As a result of the flexible structure within our investment platform, we can support and execute long-term growth strategies, while patiently resolving business hurdles without the timing pressure and restrictions of a limited-term fund.
