Overview

Moa Capital is a growth private equity firm focused on companies in the lower-middle market.

The firm was founded by experienced middle-market private equity investors who recognize the significant opportunity with businesses that are too small for larger private equity firms and do not offer the high growth rates required by venture capital investors. These businesses typically generate less than $8 million of EBITDA, are in niche markets and have a track record of steady financial performance.

We provide capital, strategic insight and experience transitioning small-businesses into established middle-market companies. We have a network of operating executives that assist with developing the business strategy and implementing growth initiatives.

Moa Capital offers flexible capital solutions that are not restricted by time horizon or limited to control investments.
