We invest in people—and then work together to build great companies.

At Northwood, we can invest at any stage of a company’s growth. We can supply needed capital to companies that are thriving—but we don’t shy away from situations that start out messy. A strong management team can accomplish wonders, and with our assistance, they often do.
