Private Investments

Group 206’s focus is to invest in companies where our capital and experience in business building can lead to long-term and sustainable value creation.

We invest in high-growth companies that have reached an inflection point in their growth, strategic direction or operations.

We unlock value by applying a disciplined strategy and implementing a robust operating toolkit post-investment.

With deep relationships and the requisite expertise, Group 206 can quickly assess, invest in and scale companies to their next stage of growth.

Investment Approach

We invest in businesses that are at an inflection point. We seek situations where our flexibility and industry specific expertise lead to superior outcomes. We generally define inflection points as:

  • Founders or owners seeking liquidity
  • Founders or owners looking for an expert partner to optimize business potential
  • Dividend and other types of recapitalization
  • Capital-constrained businesses which can benefit from growth capital
  • Sellers who are limited by a defined investment cycle
  • Corporate carve outs
