Cognitive Capital Partners, LLC (“CCP”) is a private equity firm focused on investing in businesses in which human, organizational and intellectual capital are critical factors for success. We seek investment opportunities in the lower middle market in manufacturing, business services, marketing services, data analytics and consumer sectors. Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Chicago, we currently manage a portfolio of companies with an aggregate equity value of approximately $160 million.
Our differentiation is that we invest our time managing a fewer number of high quality investments, allowing us a greater focus on assisting management and creating value. Our truly unique approach provides a deeper partnership with management, generating a more collaborative and productive relationship and alignment of objectives between employees, management and investors.
We bring significant operating and management experience to the lower middle market to support management and drive growth and value creation. Our experience includes operating, managing, growing, developing and advising companies ranging in size from family owned to the Fortune 500, enabling us to leverage a deep understanding of the challenges and issues facing the companies we invest in and provide valuable assistance to our management partners.
