    Olympus Partners is a private equity firm focused on middle market management buyouts and later stage venture capital deals. Founded in 1988, Olympus manages over $3.1 billion on behalf of corporate pension plans, public retirement systems, university endowment funds, and executives of Olympus' portfolio companies. Olympus is currently investing from its fifth fund, Olympus Growth Fund V, which has committed capital of $1.5 billion. The firm purposely limits the number of investments it makes to five or six each year and looks to invest larger dollar amounts in each company. The preferred investment size ranges from $20 million for venture capital deals to $300 million or more for buyouts. Rather than investing in companies focused on capturing a small piece of a large market, the firm looks for companies that have established a dominant position in a defensible niche. While Olympus will continue to invest opportunistically, it has developed particular interest and expertise in the following industry sectors: Business Services, Healthcare Manufacturing and Services, Financial Services, Consumer Products and Services, Software and IT Services, and Logistics and Transportation Services.
