    Lake Capital manages more than $1.3 billion in equity commitments and invests in middle-market, growth-oriented business service companies. The areas the firm targets include: Marketing services, Finance-related services, Operational- and infrastructure-related services, Healthcare services, and Technology services. The firm typically commits $50-75 million of equity for its transactions. Typically, opportunities fall into three categories: a buyout of an existing, solid, service-based business; a partnership with existing management in the acquisition and operation of a platform company; or a specialized start-up where a significant market opportunity exists.
