Lakewood is a multi-stage investment firm focused on making private equity and venture capital investments in US-based businesses that operate in the industrial, technology and financial services sectors. Our target equity investment size ranges from $5 to $50 million for private equity, with an ability to complete much larger investments with our institutional partners, and $500,000 to $10 million for venture capital.
Although we have a track record of success as investors, our DNA is much more operational in nature than it is financial. As a result, we prefer investment opportunities where we see an attractive fit for a hands-on, collaborative partnership with management. In working with our portfolio companies, we seek to leverage our extensive network of relationships whenever possible. Our team is comprised of members with decades of operating, commercialization and investment experience gained from diverse backgrounds in industry, finance, research & development and advanced technology.
Lakewood does not have a traditional fund structure and sources capital to complete investments on a deal-by-deal basis. Our investors consist of a group of high-net-worth families and institutions, all of which represent longstanding relationships.
We have office locations in Los Angeles, Silicon Valley, Austin and Atlanta. Motivated entrepreneurs leading companies that meet our investment criteria are encouraged to contact us directly.
