Our investment approach
Breaking down our process
We find a growing industry niche that is highly fragmented, do our homework, build conviction, and determine if it's a good pitch to hit.
We recruit the best board members and executives, with complementary knowledge and networks, laying the groundwork for future growth.
Applying our industry knowledge and relationships, we build connections until we find the right founder or entrepreneur to launch a platform company.
We invest in entrepreneurs, businesses, data-driven decision-making, unmatched operational support, and the people, processes, and technology to turbocharge growth of a company.
Playing to our strengths — to help maximize yours
We have the biggest impact when we partner with companies with $5M-$100M revenue and entrepreneurs ready to go to the next level.
We stick to what we do best and have a specialized playbook for growth. Over nearly 1,000 partnerships with small and medium businesses, we’ve seen what works — and what doesn’t.
You have high expectations and so do we. We look for founders with an outsized technical skill set seeking a partner for growth, companies with great potential and ambitious goals, and a strong belief we can succeed together.
Investing in what we know
We use rigorous research and our in-house scorecard to assess industries we believe are primed for growth. Today, Shore is actively investing in healthcare, food & beverage, real estate, business services, and industrials.
