    Wheelhouse Ventures is a Frisco, Texas-based private investment firm focused on opportunistic investments with unique and compelling stories. Wheelhouse was founded in 2008 to pursue microcap, small, and lower middle-market companies, diversified businesses, and the acquisition and development of real estate. The firm provides equity capital, strategic advice, and management expertise to underperforming, distressed, or undercapitalized companies. Wheelhouse is backed by experienced and trusted local investors, angel investors, high net worth individuals, and family offices. Wheelhouse is focused on transactions valued under $10 million. The firm is industry agnostic, however, generally shys away from deals in oil and gas, banking, and high-tech. Wheelhouse prefers profitable businesses that have a positive EBITDA, but will invest in smallish businesses that are losing money or have a troubled operating history.
