Eidolon is a private investment platform based in Nashville, TN with broadly diversified holdings across a wide range of industries.

Our investments include businesses in software, industrial distribution, information technology, staffing, consumer products, real estate, and medical equipment. Eidolon focuses on lower middle market acquisitions ($2mm-$10mm in EBITDA) and is industry agnostic but specializing in control acquisitions in services, technology, distribution, and manufacturing.

Our Investing Approach

When we partner with a family or founder who has created an enduring business our goal is to build upon the strong foundations that are already in place. We want to preserve and grow what makes your business special, and find opportunities for your team to grow alongside us and the business.

We are a family of business owners and operators, and that’s how we approach investing. We are not a sharp-elbowed private equity buyer or an opportunistic competitor looking to pounce. We want to help you find a meaningful long-term home for your business, create opportunities for your team to grow and thrive, and build upon what makes your company special.

What Makes Eidolon Unique?

Build On Success

We believe in preserving and building upon the core of what makes a company special as well as investing in growth by building upon, rather than tearing down, the foundations that have made your business a proven success.

Take Care of Good People

Partnering with and finding ways to empower and provide opportunities for your trusted employees and team is a fundamental part of our approach. In almost every deal we do management has a significant equity stake.

Speed & Certainty of Close

We can move quickly, and can close in as little as 45-60 days. We can often sidestep the lengthy and burdensome process of traditional private equity diligence, and get the deal done with minimal disruption to your life and your business. We have closed on many transactions that no other buyer could figure out.

Win-Win Thinking

We know that good partnerships are created when both parties are fair and come to the table to work together and create a win-win. We don't believe in doing business any other way. We won't do a deal without feeling that it's fair and equitable to everyone involved.

Investment Criteria

We are looking to acquire companies with $5mm to $50mm in revenue and between $1mm and $10mm in EBITDA. We are primarily interested in family or founder-owned businesses based in the Southeast, industry-agnostic but focusing around services, manufacturing, distribution, and technology. We have a preference for contracted and recurring revenue businesses with a strong asset base, existing management infrastructure in place and we only make control equity investments.
