In an industry where normalcy breeds unprofitable results, HGGC seeks to transcend norms by creating trends that “shape tomorrow’s opportunities.” Founded in 2007, this private equity investment firm offers expertise, custom solutions, and services abound. Co-founded by NFL star Steve Young, this PE business has a unique backstory. When Young reached the end of his prime, he endeavored to make a name for himself in a different realm. An enterprising man through and through, Young realized he had a flair for entrepreneurialism. Eight years after bidding his football career a tear-laden farewell, Young reached the pinnacle of his business career.
As the company’s managing director, Young oversees the lion’s share of operations. After spending nearly a decade at the helm, Young’s acquired expertise in the following fields: leveraged buyouts, middle markets, growth equity, and platform investments. As a whole, HGGC strives to “provide insight into ongoing middle market trends.” What’s more, the firm is very enthusiastic about partnering with companies that have an EBITDA between $15 million and $75 million. While this may appear a seemingly unattainable goal, HGGC’s years of industry success bespeaks their ability to make the impossible possible.
These days, HGGC is making diligent efforts to expand beyond their North American partnerships by forging relations with international businesses and startup companies. More specifically, they’re looking to invest in nationwide conglomerates that specialize in one of the following industries: healthcare, industrial services, finance, retail, infrastructure, software, professional development, technology, and communications. Given their far-reaching appeal, HGGC is confident they’ll soon establish a rapport with an organization that fits the above description. Above all else, HGGC puts a premium on investing in advanced technology. According to top execus, cutting-edge technology bodes well for “superior deal flow, aligned interests, and disciplined investment choices.”
