Main Street is an investment firm that provides a unique alternative to traditional private equity firms. Main Street is based in Houston, TX and provides “one-stop” (both debt and equity) capital solutions for lower middle market companies seeking to grow or transition ownership and debt capital to middle market companies. We offer entrepreneurs, business owners and management teams a number of unique advantages to help each business realize its full potential and generate wealth for the owners and management teams.
We distinguish ourselves from other investment firms through our flexible capital and long-term outlook. As a publicly traded investment firm (NYSE: MAIN), we are not required to return our investors’ capital by a specific date, as is typical of most institutional funds. This allows us the flexibility to be a long-term partner in both good economies and in more challenging markets. Regardless of our equity ownership, we aim to structure financial partnerships that align our interests with the business, allowing management and the existing owners to maintain significant operational and strategic control.
Our executive leadership team has over 100 years of combined experience across a wide variety of industries. We work to create meaningful experiences for our employees which allows individuals to be themselves and connect with their peers. This culture is the secret ingredient to Main Street Capital’s 20+ years of success. At Main Street, we believe a diverse perspective and background helps strengthen our firm. We are focused on attracting, developing and retaining talent for our investment teams and corporate staff by offering our team members the opportunity for professional development in an entrepreneurial work environment.
