NCK Capital acquires controlling interests in lower-middle market companies and takes them to the next level with “right-fit” capital structures, inspiring management incentives, and nurturing support.


Exit Strategy/Retirement

We understand selling your business is sensitive. We RESPECTFULLY AND DISCREETLY provide ownership with an avenue to pursue other interests. We give entrepreneurs peace of mind that their business and its people will continue to thrive after a change in control.

Management Buyouts

No one knows a business as well as those who run it. We back incumbent operators in the acquisition of privately held companies, corporate spin-offs and small public companies.


We invest when larger public or private parent corporations sell off non-core business units that have proven operators.


Entrepreneurs love us because we believe in shooting straight and mutual respect. We invest when a entrepreneur/owner sells a majority stake in their business, but retains a meaningful ownership interest and stays on to lead the company.
