Who We Are
How We Deliver Value
Founded in 2015, Jacmel Growth Partners is a people-centric private investment firm targeting family-operated, lower middle market companies with a focus on combining traditional private equity best practices with low-cost, high-impact strategies that promote growth while also benefiting employees and their communities. As part of its investment philosophy, Jacmel targets asset-lite, business services companies that operate in fragmented industries. By leveraging technology,implementing operational improvements, and making strategic platform acquisitions, Jacmel has proven its capability to enhance value within its portfolio companies while implementing a range of inclusive economy initiatives, including workforce development, increased Board representation of BIPOC leaders, and educational benefits for employees. Jacmel’s investors and partners understand the power of melding management expertise and social impact as a means for accelerated growth.
We work closely with family-owned and owner-operated businesses that can scale through improved planning, employee incentives, acquisitions, and operational improvements using systems, technology and strategic initiatives.
We recognize there are a growing number of companies in the lower middle market that have achieved success, yet are navigating a competitive landscape or a multi-generational transition.
