Lakewind Investments is an investment firm founded on the belief its experience in investing, managing, and growing companies can help others. As a privately funded firm, we hold greater flexibility in deal pursuit, structuring, and exit timing. We seek to invest in quality businesses and support management teams in creating value for all parties involved.
The team at Lakewind is experienced in investing in companies of all shapes and sizes with companies valued as small as <$1 million and as large as $7 billion. We have invested more than $150 million into over 20 companies in industries such as manufacturing, business services, logistics, technology, and healthcare.
We believe successful investments incorporate excellent companies with great management teams, with the opportunity for us to add value through our operating expertise and financial resources. Since we prefer to not participate in the daily management, we serve as active advisers for managers to help navigate and grow the business.
We seek to invest in companies with the intention to help foster and ensure the long-term success of the company. In order to do this, we maintain appropriate levels of debt while aligning interests with all parties to create the proper incentive structure for both short-term and long-term goal achievement.
