The Shore Difference
If you’re considering private equity, Shore is not your only choice. But it’s the only place you’ll find our combination of process, playbook, relationships, and record.
A founder-first playbook for transformative growth
Our vision is to be the first choice for entrepreneurs and executives seeking a partner for growth.
Our process is based on executing simple ideas and keeping our word. We’ve been named to Inc. Magazine’s list of the Best Private Equity Firms for Entrepreneurs for four years running.
We've had a lot of reps
Since 2019, we’ve done more partnership deals than any private equity firm in the world. We put that experience to work for our founders – it is great to learn from experience, but even better to learn from someone else’s experience.
We win when you win
In private equity, metrics don’t lie. Our returns place us in the top 1% of PE firms — benefiting founders and their companies.
You are part of a winning team, from Day 1
Before we greenlight a new partnership, we recruit the Mount Rushmore of leaders in an industry to join the board and accelerate success. Your board is a difference-maker.
A place where the best people and companies can soar
The day you join Shore, you’re no longer on your own. You’re part of 35,000+ people sharing ideas that help us all go faster with less risk.
Learning from other successful people is not the exception — it’s the system. You’ll have a board hand-selected for their complementary skills, as well as peers at 50+ other companies. And as our network grows, so do the benefits of being part of it.
A proven system, designed to help you grow
Practice makes perfect. After partnering with hundreds of companies, we’ve learned valuable lessons and made our share of mistakes. We haven’t seen it all, but we’ve tackled most problems at least once.
We open our network and apply our expertise in partnership with you — so we can navigate obstacles, find impactful solutions, and go further and faster together.
Big business resources. Small business focus.
We help small and medium-sized businesses get the tools they need but can’t easily acquire on their own.
An all-star board of directors
When we assemble a board, we construct a superteam. We find the leading executives in their industry and bring their complementary network and skillsets to your business.See how Shore boards are different

Hear from entrepreneurs who’ve partnered with us
You mentioned something in the early days about how much it meant to you to change the lives of those who were part of your team. Thank you for what you allowed me to accomplish for my family. This meant everything to me.
Scott BullockCo-Founder and President, EyeSouth Partners
Your effort is inspiring to me as a leader in how I can push myself and our teams to go the extra mile, do the extra things in support of partners and team members. It is a Shore foundational quality that I have observed, that is relevant in all aspects of business but especially in sectors that are acquisition centric.
