We believe in working for long-term success

What we do is simple – financing for the lower middle market. We’re focused on it. So we understand the territory as well as anyone out there. Our core team has been together since 1993. In that time, we’ve built strong relationships and leaned on our Midwestern values to earn our reputation for trusted, experienced, and committed financing partners.


For nearly three decades, Northstar Capital has built strong relationships across the lower middle market and earned its reputation for honest and transparent dealing with financial sponsors, business owners, management teams, and financing partners.


Having completed over 155 platform investments across a variety of industries and situations, Northstar Capital investment professionals bring a wealth of experience – including best practices and lessons learned – to each partnership. Drawing upon this breadth of experience, we take a collaborative approach to design thoughtful capital structures and terms for each transaction that facilitate productive working relationships among financing partners, financial sponsors, business owners, and management teams.


Northstar Capital has a steadfast commitment to each deal. For nearly three decades, we have worked closely with our partners to guide deals from start to finish. We stay active throughout the life of the investment, adding value and providing a steady hand alongside each of our partners.
