Who We Are
Purpose driven and partnership oriented
Based in Jacksonville, Florida, Shoreline primarily invests in companies sourced or headquartered in the Southeast but does pursue select opportunities nationally. While we typically take control positions at our portfolio companies, we have the flexibility to invest in minority and growth equity positions.
Shoreline’s inaugural fund has $300 million in committed capital and we are actively pursuing platform and add-on acquisition opportunities.
To partner with leading entrepreneurs and managers to build well-respected businesses in a socially responsible manner to generate exceptional outcomes for investors, portfolio company stakeholders, Shoreline team members, and communities across the Southeastern United States.
Southeast Focus, National Reach
Shoreline professionals have spent the majority of their careers helping companies in the Southeast maximize their full potential. The Southeast is experiencing enormous growth due to its favorable economic climate, labor / tax dynamics, and ease of doing business. Although the Southeast is the largest contributor to U.S. GDP and has the largest regional population, less than 4% of U.S. private equity capital committed since 2010 has been raised by firms headquartered in the region.
We believe our shared background and style make us an excellent match for founders and executives in the Southeast, particularly relative to other investment firms based outside the region.
While the majority of our time is focused on the Southeast, our reach stretches nationally, especially for opportunities where we have deep industry experience.
Shoreline professionals bring over 100 years of relevant investing experience across dozens of historical platform investments. Our longstanding experience is underscored by outstanding returns over a wide range of industries across multiple growth stages and economic cycles. Our direct sourcing capabilities, strong intermediary relationships, and extensive executive network uniquely position Shoreline to capitalize on opportunities in the Southeast and nationally.
