NOT PRIVATE EQUITY

Outdoor Capital Partners is a boutique investment house owned and managed by lifelong entrepreneurs, not investors, not fund managers, not financial analysts. 


We invest our capital, our time and our passion alongside our entrepreneur partners to aid them on their way and only invest in a limited number of businesses so that we can focus. Our expectation is no less than 100% success for the businesses and entrepreneurs that we partner with. Together, we move forward, never back, knowing well that the path is not an easy one.  


Our partners have chosen the difficult route – the lonely road, the steep and treacherous one, but the right one.

OUR THESIS

NOT PRIVATE EQUITY

NOT PRIVATE EQUITY

We invest in special people with unique insights that are clear, focused and rooted in character. Like the outdoors itself, these companies improve our lives and the very success of the company is itself a vehicle to make the world a little bit better. We invest in companies that share our beliefs and are in line with our own visions and values. We don’t seek to change the companies we invest in – we only seek to nurture and guide them to their fullest potential. While we love to share the journey in the sunshine, we’re also there with an umbrella when it starts to rain.


The path that our partners have taken is hard and exactly why others don’t often travel this way.  It's why it’s worth it, and what we love about what we do.

WHO WE INVEST IN

NOT PRIVATE EQUITY

WHO WE INVEST IN

Our partners are unusual, visionary, principled, strong. They don’t see the world the way most people do – they can be eccentric, contradictory, complicated or simple, counter-intuitive, clever, educated or drop-outs, scrappy, calm and even crazy. They come in all shapes and colors, from various backgrounds, countries, religions and cultures. 


These are women and men of every color and race, social butterflies and loaners. They are dreamers, missionaries, idealists and obsessive nut-jobs who all share the same traits of an undeniable belief system, hard-wired in character, idealism and ambition. 


Their unique view of the world manifests itself into businesses with impeccable character, a clear mission, integrity, rooted in principle. 


These special people make magic happen – they create.
