Sunlake Capital LLC is a private investment firm focused on long-term private equity investments in companies that possess a sustainable competitive advantage.


Sunlake makes control equity investments with the assets of our principals and select capital partners. We partner with management to build enduring enterprises with the resources to sustain organic and acquisitive growth. Opportunity to compound this lasting value is made possible by our willingness to hold investments over a longer term.

Sunlake further differentiates by prioritizing aligned management partnerships and pursuing opportunities that are matched with the potential for proprietary value creation.


Partnership Approach

Whether it’s a transition to the next generation, provision of liquidity to a retiring partner, or capital infusion for growth, Sunlake prefers to invest in situations where business owners or management continue to own a meaningful equity stake in their company. Sunlake also considers minority equity investments when accompanied by control rights. For all investments, we invest a significant portion of our own assets, which ensures shared impact of decision making and the truest alignment of incentives and risks.   Read More

Long-term Investment Style

Sunlake adopts a long-term vision for its investments and has the flexibility to hold investments for three to fifteen years, or longer. This investment style affords us the ability to focus on industries and situations that are often under-served by the private equity community. Our long-term vision also extends to company legacies, making us ideal stewards of family-owned businesses.   Read More
