    Grouse Ridge Capital is Family Office operating private equity and venture capital funds. The firm operates under a similar model to that pioneered by the Bessemer Securities Corporation and serves as the investment vehicle for an operating portfolio of over a dozen companies. For portfolio companies, Grouse Ridge provides business counseling from its team of entrepreneurs, finance, and operations professionals in addition to its financial support. The firm makes venture capital investments in actively managed early-stage (valuation under $5 million and capital needs under $10 million) and passive late-stage ventures (minority positions of between $500,000 and $3 million), and will also make majority-ownership private equity investments in high-potential companies seeking liquidity and growth.
