The WayPoint Capital Partners Story
To help our partners meet their objectives requires the kind of expert guidance that can see and steer around the inevitable challenges of growing a business. WayPoint Capital Partners was founded to provide entrepreneurs and family-owned businesses with the expertise and resources of a traditional fund sponsor, but without a traditional fund’s limitations. We listen to your needs and provide a high degree of flexibility in structuring investments to meet your objectives. We continue to provide access to capital and expert resources through an efficient, transparent process throughout the life of the investment. If there’s a bump in the road, as always happens, we’ll help you fix it. Lastly, unlike traditional funds, our decision to exit the business is never dictated by the need to get capital back to limited partners to raise another fund, but rather, based upon what is in the best interest of our management teams and portfolio companies.
WayPoint Capital Partners is the direct private equity affiliate of Privet Capital, a family investment office for a cable and satellite entrepreneur. Because we invest our own capital and do not solely rely on third party investors, we are free from external influences that can interfere with growing businesses and focus only on creating long term shareholder value.
