Flexible. Patient. Capital.

JAM Capital Partners is a private investment partnership backed by entrepreneurial families and individuals.  Our core business is making growth equity investments in fast growing middle market operating companies.  We seek to invest in situations where we can add significant value beyond our capital – most often bringing valuable relationships or operational expertise to the table.  We are focused on the Southeast US though we have invested nationwide and hold capital relationships internationally.  

Our investment partners are successful entrepreneurs who know that building a successful business requires a long-term view and the ability to adapt quickly.  We have a flexible investment mandate that enables us to invest in creative structures in a diverse set of industries.  We pride ourselves on a partnership approach that aligns our interests with entrepreneurs, and we have a long-term investment horizon that is not governed by artificial timelines.
