Domain Expertise. Government contracting is hard and complex. In selecting a capital partner, it is critical that management choose a firm that understands its business and industry - for example, setasides, contract capture & pricing, certifications, policy & political dynamics, and government billing cycles. Because this is all we do, we speak your language. When you face challenges, we roll-up our sleeves, not run for the door.
Flexible, Patient Capital. Donovan Capital provides multiple capital solutions tailored to the unique needs of each company. Because we are a family office with $300 Million in available capital, we have the flexibility to pursue compelling opportunities, think long-term, and be creative. We will work directly with companies, private equity firms, and independent sponsors. Our typical investment structures include:
We do not do venture investments, lines of credit, or other asset-based lending.
Our Niche. Within Aerospace & Defense and Government Services, we are sub-industry agnostic and frequently work with service, manufacturing, industrial, hardware, technology, and software businesses, including companies with dual commercial/civilian customers. However, we are most uniquely positioned to support government services businesses that do highly classified, clandestine, or other sensitive work for the U.S. Government.
We fund strategic acquisitions for companies, private equity sponsors, and independent sponsors, as well as finance management buyouts.
