Growth orientation. Partnership mentality.

We are a growth-oriented private equity firm that makes control investments in technology and technology-enabled services companies serving government and enterprise end markets.

We launched OceanSound in 2019 to focus on what we do best: partnering with founders, entrepreneurs, and executives of middle-market technology businesses and helping them realize their growth objectives and unlock their potential through a hands-on approach.

Our investment philosophy is based on the principle of continuous improvement. We partner with management teams that have a like-minded commitment to change and are seeking a value-add partner. We empower our executives to build better businesses by not only investing our capital, but also our time and expertise.

Our investment team has over 85 years of collective experience investing in and supporting businesses that serve our target end-markets, making us familiar with both the opportunities and the challenges faced by managers of growth-stage companies.

We are well-equipped to advise on best practices by leveraging our combined experience across end markets, industries and prior investments. We are proud of the track record of aggressive growth and significant value creation that we have helped our management teams achieve.

As a small, close-knit, and highly entrepreneurial team, we believe our culture aligns with the entrepreneurs with whom we partner. We take our work very seriously, but not ourselves.
