Who We Are

 

EBSCO Capital is the investment and acquisition team of EBSCO Industries – a family-owned and private held conglomerate headquartered in Birmingham, AL.

We have a multifaceted investment strategy that anchors around a thematic investment mandate, seeking to capture, across asset classes, the opportunities created by long-term structural trends. We deploy controlling and minority equity capital in situations including buyouts, add-ons, early and late-stage venture, growth, joint-venture, and private equity and venture capital (as a limited partner).

Our focus spans a variety of industries ranging from information products and services, healthcare technology, value-add distribution, software-as-a-service, and other durable and enduring businesses. We are continually developing and validating thematic areas of interest as we actively invest and expand our portfolio.
