In our heart of hearts, like the sellers we partner with, the Borgman Capital team are true entrepreneurs. We know what it takes to forge ahead, and to be honorable and resilient in an industry that demands your all.

That’s why when it comes to private equity—selling, investing, financial counsel, and more— Borgman Capital is the first thought.

We focus on what we know best and for which we have a deep appreciation—lower middle market businesses located in the Midwest. We believe this area is underserved, and we know the importance of shared values between private equity and seller partnerships. The connections we build with our sellers, their teams, and within our own vast network of financial and advisory resources are genuine. They’re grounded on trust and a comprehensive understanding of what it takes to succeed.

By embracing your entrepreneurial spirit whether through building a business or considering an exciting investment venture, you’re taking the road less traveled. It’s a long way to success, and we’re here with you, every step of the way.
