    Dunrath Capital is a research-based private equity and strategic advisory firm. The current principal investment fund, Dunrath Capital Infrastructure Surety Fund, invests in early and growth-stage companies delivering infrastructure surety products and services. Infrastructure surety is defined as those products and services that identify, protect, or defend against threats to modern infrastructures. The firm's first fund, Dunrath Partners is an early-stage commercialization fund focused primarily in the same industries as the Dunrath Capital Infrastructure Surety Fund. The Fund's strategy is to be the first investor in infrastructure surety-driven companies that seek to create new markets and to capitalize on significant growth potential. The Fund has invested in two portfolio companies: Nuron and Arxan. Nuron was purchased by Intel Corporation. Arxan remains the only portfolio company. Dunrath invests in promising companies across all stages of development, with a particular emphasis in growth equity situations. The firm invests primarily in U.S.-based companies.
