One Focus and a Passion for Growth

For three decades, Capstone Strategic has been helping middle market companies grow. Our experience is your asset

Capstone Strategic, Inc. is a single-minded company. From our foundation in 1995, we’ve had one focus: external growth for middle market companies. External growth means expanding your company through partnership with another, whether by acquisition, minority ownership, joint venture, strategic alliance or some other structure. In this field, our expertise is unrivaled.

There are many firms offering parts of the puzzle: only Capstone Strategic is solely focused on external growth for the middle market. Only Capstone covers every component of a successful transaction from initial strategy to deal execution. And only Capstone has spent over twenty years with a single focus on middle market M&A.

Today, Capstone’s experience can be your asset. We can save you millions of dollars and years of heartache, because wherever you are going, we have probably been there before. We invite you to build your growth on our foundations.

The Capstone Story

“I founded Capstone Strategic in 1995 with one concept in mind — to help companies to grow. From the beginning, the focus was growth through external relationships, such as acquisitions, joint ventures and strategic alliances.

I realized that the traditional approach to M&A was not suited to middle market companies. On the one hand you have consultants who create a strategy and then leave you on your own to implement it. On the other hand you have investment bankers who push strategy aside to execute a deal at all costs.

I developed a new, holistic approach designed to support the client all the way through, from strategy to execution. This became the basis for Capstone’s proprietary Roadmap to Acquisitions℠ approach to external growth.”
