Formed in 2002, Cloquet seeks to enter into close operating partnerships with the managers of portfolio companies, with Cloquet's resources providing support to help them achieve their strategic objectives and growth. Cloquet invests its own private capital, not that of third parties. Cloquet seeks to make initial investments in companies with revenues up to $50 million. Investments range from $50,000 to $500,000 with participation in follow-on stages. They typically co-invest with other investors and may lead/co-lead an investment.Transaction values typically range between $5 and $30 million. The firm prefers companies in non-turnaround situations to have at least $1 million of operating profit, although this is not a requirement.
