Your partner in
next-level growth.

Erie Street brings strategic capital and transformational partnership to highly disrupted, changing business environments to unlock next-level growth.

For more than 30 years, our team of business-builders have partnered with founders, management teams, and investors growing business services companies to maximize potential and deliver outsized outcomes.

Purpose-built for founders looking for more than capital.


An alternative to traditional private equity, Erie Street provides founders a unique blend of strategic capital and transformational guidance creating a new kind of partnership model for growth.

Founder experience

In today’s transformational environment, high-growth companies need an empathetic partner who has been there, done that. Founders also often need a fresh injection of the entrepreneurial courage they had when they first started out.

Boundless partnership

We are fully committed to knowing your business inside and out. From the co-creation of a future vision to side-by-side activation, it’s a level of engagement that spans whiteboards to board rooms. 

Warm, patient capital

Backed by our network of 45+ family offices, we define a future vision and work to realize outsized outcomes — even if that’s outside typical time frames. Transforming services-led companies takes time, but also results in more lasting advantages. 

Cultural alignment

Our team of business-builders bring kindness, curiosity and courage to our work. We see the people inside the organization as partners — and that means spending time with and making decisions with those same people.

create next-level value.
