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.

How We Succeed


Partnership Driven

We believe in working together. And we seek to partner with exceptional management teams to provide the resources needed to support and grow the team’s vision.


Deal Flexibility

We want to build great companies. Not being beholden to a specific investment timeline, allows us more flexibility in the deal structure to ensure a smooth transition and allow for more partnered opportunities.


Long-Term Vision

EBSCO has been around for over 75 years. We want to continue to create positive results by investing in companies for the long-term so that best interest of the company is always first.
