Glass Lake Capital was formed by a team of successful entrepreneurs and operators to invest in a privately held business and help it achieve its long-term potential. Our goal is to tailor a liquidity or growth capital solution specifically to the needs of the business and its owner.
We are passionate about building companies, creating a positive and rewarding culture for employees and their families, and giving back to the community. We are responsible business builders, simply put.
People: People and their relationships are the center of your company. We realize that business is a team game and that winning is at the crossroads of hard work and a positive culture.
Entrepreneurial Attitude: We believe in harnessing the unrelenting power of the entrepreneur by fostering a culture of creativity, calculated risk-taking and tireless execution.
Integrity and Trust: We do what we say. We communicate clearly and look to build an open and honest relationship with you and your team.
Long-Term Mindset: Our passion is in building lasting businesses. This requires patience, collaboration, and flexibility. Our solutions are uniquely tailored to each situation with a long-term focus in mind.
We seek to invest in and operate a high growth business in which the owner is looking to transition leadership. Our solution is ideal for a business owner that wants a trusted successor and a personalized sale. A sample of our investment criteria and situational expertise is below.
