About Us

Blue Highway Capital was formed to stimulate and reinforce the growth of small companies located in rural and other underserved areas of the United States where private equity capital is scarce yet necessary to capitalize on growth opportunities.  Our firm’s name is derived from the small, forgotten, out-of-the-way roads connecting rural America which were drawn in blue on old road atlases.

Blue Highway makes growth equity investments of $2 to $5 million in small, growing established companies, an area of the economy that has been traditionally underserved by institutional capital. These small businesses are the growth engine that drives the rural economy and helps generate job growth.  We invest in companies that have reached an inflection point where a growth equity investment can create significant value for business owners and their employees.  We invest nationally with a geographic focus in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states regions.

We partner with business owners and operators to accelerate their company’s growth, improve the operating performance, and increase the value of the companies in which we invest.  We work collaboratively with great management teams to take your business to the next level of profitable growth.  Our partnership approach begins with active, strategic involvement at the board level, while helping to scale your company by leveraging our resources and core competencies.

We value the unique innovation and hard work of entrepreneurs to create extraordinary outcomes. Thank you for considering us to be part of that journey.

Blue Highway Capital provides later stage, growth companies with the capital and value added resources (financial, industry, strategic) to help optimize performance and increase enterprise value while seeking to provide above market returns to our limited partners.

As active board participants, we work with our portfolio companies to help strengthen top management, increase operational efficiencies, and implement corporate governance systems.  We are an active and constructive investor, engaged with management to leverage our industry knowledge, experience and resources to help accelerate your company’s growth.

The Blue Highway team provides expertise to achieve rapid implementation of value creation opportunities through “180-day plans,” which are co-developed with management, and the application of business tools and best practices.  We help you make more informed decisions and capture value quickly.

Providing capital is just a starting point for how we can assist in achieving your vision.  Having served on the boards of over 35 portfolio companies, our principals draw from a wealth of sector expertise, personal networks and investment experience to help companies develop growth strategies, recruit talent, execute company acquisitions and navigate the inevitable twists and turns of rapidly growing businesses. We believe that trust, transparency, aligned interests and sensible decision making are essential to developing enduring partnerships.

Over the past 25 years, the Blue Highway team has invested over $140 million into 54 small middle market and early stage companies.
