Since 1989, we've raised and managed more than $3.9 billion and invested in over 335 portfolio companies.
We partner with company management, founders and entrepreneurs with the goal of building world-class companies across our sectors of focus: Healthcare, Industrial Technology & Solutions, and Technology and Services.
We work with our companies to help them grow. Our team of investment, operating and human capital professionals collaborates closely to provide relationships and operating resources to our portfolio companies. As a global private equity firm with investment and operating professionals located across three continents, we are well-positioned to help lower-middle-market companies succeed in the global marketplace.
Baird Capital invests alongside entrepreneurs and company founders who have a passion for their businesses. We have the flexibility to invest in companies at numerous stages of growth, from mid-stage businesses with $2M+ in recurring revenue to companies with $150 million in revenues.
Most importantly, we look for companies where we feel we can deliver resources, relationships and expertise to accelerate their growth. We are not just providing financial capital – we are focused on helping our companies build their businesses, and we are passionate about it.
Our sector-focused teams invest in growing companies across the U.S., Europe and Asia. This geographic flexibility positions us to be strategic in our investments and take advantage of compelling opportunities as they emerge.
In addition to deep investment experience and expertise, Baird Capital's Portfolio Operations team takes a hands-on approach to helping our portfolio companies grow and compete in the global marketplace.
