    business

  • What is your Business/ Brand about?

    We have just begun a small private equity company. Most traditional private equity companies focus on buying and selling companies worth $10million+ Unfortunately, there are a lot of babyboomers out there that have built up smaller sized companies and are looking to retire but have no successor and therefore no exit plan. Our company buys small American manufacturing companies with sales between $1million and $5million, and continues to grow them until they are of a size that is more attractive to your traditional private equity firm. Typically, company names in this field of work are three words: X Capital Partners, and have the exact url: X.com or Xcapital.com.

  • Tell us about your customers

    Our customers are business owners that are looking to retire and sell their business. These businesses are typically manufacturing firms, with sales between $1million and $5million.

  • What Style or Character should the brand convey?

    Well, this is a hard question to answer. We know that we need to appear legitimate (we are, as our investors have accumulated over $20million, referred to as the "fund", for us to use to buy companies and then run them). Our branding position is this: our "fund" is setup to offer small American business owners the chance to exit their respective business, but at the same time offer their business a chance to continue to grow. We do not fire the employees, we do not change the name, we simply apply a more advanced business skillset to take the company to the next level. Most small business owners started out as entrepreneurs and therefore do not have the business skills to grow their business beyond a certain point. We swoop in, give them an option to exit and begin enjoying retirement, and begin to grow their companies further. A perfect name would be "Transition Capital", but that name and the url are taken - of course! So we are open to real words as names as well as made up words ;) We also thought of "Main Street Capital", but that was taken too.
