Lightview Capital is a leading private equity firm focused on providing its portfolio companies deep industry knowledge, insightful experience, and active resources to unlock growth and drive value. Lightview Capital’s approachable investment style combines deep operational and financial experience with an entrepreneurial spirit that delivers measurable results.
Headquartered in New Jersey and founded in 2012, Lightview Capital (formerly known as Red Oak Growth Partners) focuses on investments in lower middle market companies in the technology and business service industries across North America. We are known for bringing a personal touch and collaborative approach that develops deep relationships with our portfolio management teams. We actively work with our portfolio companies to accelerate internal growth and often develop and implement strategic growth via mergers and acquisitions.
Since the mid-1990s, Lightview Capital founders have successfully led direct investments of over $250 million in more than 20 growth companies. To date, over half of those investments have led to IPOs or strategic exits yielding a combined enterprise value in excess of $1 billion. Over the course of their combined 50+ years of experience they have founded and managed both operating businesses and investment firms where they were instrumental in raising over $500 million in capital from leading institutional investors that included university endowments, pension funds, family offices and funds.
