partnerships & people
Jacmel was born out of a desire to invest in communities and grow companies. The firm is named after the small community in Haiti where Managing Partner Nick Jean-Baptiste's father was born. After over 15 years of Wall Street and private equity experience growing businesses and developing financial solutions, Nick remains anchored to the values of reciprocity and care common in Jacmel village. The firm aims to treat all its partners, investors, and portfolio company employees as members of its community.
At Jacmel Growth Partners, we partner with management teams to grow profits, grow partnerships, and grow people. We are committed to delivering a strong return on investment by working with founders to increase value and by investing in the economic and educational success of employees. We believe the traditional private equity model can be complemented by sustained workforce development, making a difference for our employees, their families and communities.
