    Facilitator Capital Fund is a Wisconsin-based private equity fund committed to helping smaller, middle-market companies accelerate and sustain their growth. FCF was founded in 1999 as a $130 million SBIC by Gus Taylor and the late Robert L. Zobel. It invests $2 to $15 million in established companies with $10 to $75 million in annual sales (EBITDA > $2 million) in Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest. The firm's areas of focus are food and food equipment companies (branded, industrial and contract); manufacturing, distribution, service; medical services, devices and equipment; specialty chemical and coatings; paper converting, packaging; capital equipment, especially with a large installed base and parts business; niche equipment manufacturers; financial services; and outsourced services, as well as later-stage technology investments in these markets.
