Investment Approach

Blackbird's investment approach is built around the combination of our operating expertise and investment experience. Our operating and investing skill sets are applied equally throughout the investment process. This approach provides us with a unique perspective on deal sourcing, investment management and long-term value creation.
Through our extensive experience building and improving businesses, we have developed a systematic value creation strategy that focuses on operational enhancement and strategic growth. Our successful application of this "Operations First™" strategy has resulted in considerable margin expansion, accelerated organic growth and, ultimately, significant equity value creation.
Blackbird focuses primarily on making control investments in middle market niche manufacturing and business services companies. On exception we will consider minority investments, turnarounds, and other complex situations that require a direct hands-on approach.


Our mission is to create significant shareholder value through building better businesses.
