Hard Work. Commitment. Perseverance. Discipline.

These simple words embody our culture at Huron Capital. We believe business owners, executives, and deal referral sources choose our firm because we deliver on what we say we are going to do. Huron Capital has a rich heritage of investing in fundamentally-sound companies and working to make them stronger.

We Invest in People. We Build Leaders.

Our platform is comprised of two complementary strategies: Private Equity (majority transactions) and Flex Equity (minority transactions). We focus on making flexible and customized control and non-control equity investments in companies with up to $200 million in revenue.
