The right

Our goal is to be a nexus of credibility for our companies, connecting them with real resources in the pursuit of real and lasting results.

A different look at private equity

Traditional private equity suffers from artificial time constraints—leaving too little time to dig in and help facilitate meaningful growth. It’s about profit, not progress.

We’ve dispensed with the traditional time-sensitive fund structure. As a result, we’re more nimble and more flexible, and we have the time to dedicate our resources to your company’s long-term success.


Operators who operate

Our operating partners dig in before day one. They help develop industry ideas, source investment opportunities and lead the companies we partner with.

They get to know management personally, and often know them before we even start working together. Our portfolio companies know they can count on us when they need us.

A self-directed process

We develop a thesis before we go out looking for companies. We pinpoint where we see potential for growth, then we seek out partners who match those criteria.

We only move forward on the deals that fit us best, with companies for whom we believe we can provide real value.

Targeted partnership

Since our inception, we’ve deployed over $200 million in debt and equity capital across three platforms. In general, we've found we can be most useful to companies that meet these investment guidelines.

Prior to forming Knox, our principals have been involved in several investments at predecessor firms, having deployed debt and equity capital in excess of $500 million, at both Pfingsten Partners and Windpoint Partners, two leading middle market private equity firms.

In addition, Knox will also entertain strategic co-investments that complement our operating partner-led philosophy.
