GHC was founded to fill a gap in the traditional PE/VC investment model. There are many businesses - stable, profitable, productive - that will never attract huge investor dollars. That doesn't mean they aren't a great investment. We believe finding the right middle market companies to transition and operate is way more fulfilling than taking on the over-funded startups that are more likely to crash and burn than take off into the stratosphere. If you're ready to realize the value of all the hard work and sweat equity you have invested over the years, we're here to provide liquidity options and ensure the future of your business is bright.
Prior to founding Growth Horizons Capital, Jay started his career at Accenture and subsequently worked in smaller management consulting firms helping Fortune 500 companies operate more effectively and make better decisions rooted in data.
He is also the founder and Managing Director of Parkwood Advisors, a consultancy for growth-stage companies.
As the COO of a professional services company, Jay learned the skills required to scale a growth-stage business on a budget - sales & marketing strategy, product development, strategic partnerships, structuring legal contracts, and establishing an operational foundation. He has a demonstrated history of success in the professional services, financial services, and technology industries and is skilled in developing business strategy, leading high-performance teams, executing projects quickly and accurately, and optimizing processes.
Jay holds a BS in Chemistry from Saint Louis University (Go Billikens!) and an MS in Entrepreneurship from the University of Notre Dame.
