Investment Criteria

Investing in the future.

We seek to invest in entrepreneurial businesses that are catalysts of change. Companies that are actively adapting to the evolving needs of their customers by creating better products at lower costs. We forge relationships with market thought leaders who take the commitment to innovate seriously.

We explore a wide range of markets in which to invest, including industrial technologies, consumer & food technologies, healthcare, packaging, advanced building materials, power management, aerospace & defense, and specialty distribution. We search aggressively for companies with advanced manufacturing know-how, proprietary technologies, robust product development programs, and deep engineering resources. We invest in companies that drive market transformations with new products and applied technologies, often spurring conversions to higher-performing or lower-cost raw materials, or providing a catalyst for a product substitution trend within a market niche by offering products that add features and benefits or reduce unit costs.

Management teams who partner with us will already have an operating foundation they’re proud to share, with established processes and demonstrated returns on invested capital. We work with these teams to enhance what they’ve already built, through the Graham alliance of businesses and experts.
