• Long-term Partners Building Great Companies



    Lindsay Goldberg seeks to become long-term partners with family business owners, management teams, and exceptional CEOs who have as their goal significant long-term growth in their enterprise. We have assembled the culture, philosophy, tools, and skills necessary for this task: our unique time horizon, our capital base, our culture, our approach to partnering, our experience, our intellectual resources all reinforce our mission of being the best partner possible to family business owners, management teams, and exceptional CEOs.



  • Long-term Partners



    Our goal is to be the best possible partner for entrepreneurs and business owners who seek long-term capital to fulfill a growth strategy while maintaining a reputation of excellence. Success at Lindsay Goldberg is defined by significant growth in business size, scope, competitiveness and strategic value. Philosophically, we believe that building a business takes time. We can invest capital in a business for up to ten years, or twice the duration of most funds; we can be partners in a business for up to twenty years, or twice the duration of most funds;our investment horizon enables transformative follow on investments as they

    arise and make sense, rather than on a forced and arbitrary timetable. As investors who have invested across multiple business cycles, we are aware of the opportunity to take advantage of benign periods as well as adverse environments. We help companies play offense instead of reacting to markets and competitors. By consistently applying our insights, judgment and patient growth capital over the long term, we help companies grow in scale, capabilities and strategic significance.

  • Relationship Driven Investors



    We believe in people. In every investment we have made, we have had the privilege of building trusted relationships with amazingly talented and dedicated people of the highest integrity and honesty that do business on a handshake and put the interest of their employees and partners head of themselves. We know what our role is and what it isn’t. We cherish and seek to nurture the unique culture of a great business and work to make it bigger and better. We don’t fiddle with management. We treasure the connections that business owners have to their communities as well as their

    own employees, a connection that makes their businesses great places to work. Our business is relationship driven, and our philosophy of aggressive business growth must mesh with the culture, goals and aims of our partners. Much of our due diligence focuses on mutual exploration of how specifically this partnership will work going forward. We want to become a great home for the company an entrepreneur has spent his or her life building or for the family business that has been built over many generations.
