ABOUT US

Beacon Equity Partners is an international private equity group dedicated to wealth generation and preservation. The firm is internationally present with US & European Offices. We have a pronounced global focus, and have transacted successful investments across North America, Europe, and Asia-Pac. International expansion is frequently an important component of our value creation plan.

Beacon Equity Partners strive to create value through direct private equity & venture capital investments across multiple sectors, industries, and geographies. We are primarily focused on the business to business software space. Beacon’s capital is “evergreen” so we can invest without limited partner constraints or exit deadlines. We believe that our people and the shared values we’ve espoused since our inception remain core to our competitive advantage.

INVESTMENT APPROACH

STAGE

Beacon’s investments range from early stage to later stage growth opportunities. We develop new investment strategies, underwrite investment opportunities and make investments on our own behalf. Historically we have provided capital for a controlling interest in the business. We have an international network of operating partners that we can rely on to source and collaborate with on transactions. 

SECTOR

We focus primarily on business to business software opportunities within the financial and regulatory technology markets, especially companies that touch on the legal and compliance sectors. Through decades of experience, we have developed deep sector expertise and key relationships, which we believe make us thoughtful investors and solid partners for management.

GEOGRAPHY

We invest in companies headquartered primarily in North America and Europe, where we can leverage the strength of our network of relationships in each region. The businesses are generally global in scope, with operations and resources around the world. We have a unique talent set to help international companies grow operations, round out the management team, and drive sales in North America and globally.

GROWTH

We strive to grow our portfolio companies both organically and through acquisitions. Organically, we invest in resources to improve the  product, open new markets, new geographies and new channels of distribution. We also seek out companies and technologies where we can accelerate growth through acquisitions.

PHILANTHROPY

Pan-Florida Challenge For Hungry Kids

Beacon Equity Partners is focused on beating childhood hunger and empowering local communities and schools with the ability to feed children who do not have enough to eat. Beacon achieves this goal by supporting organizations and efforts related to Health & Well Being of Children & Families.

Beacon Equity Partner’s primary philanthropic effort is the Pan Florida Challenge (PFC). The PFC was launched as a cross Florida bike ride in 2014. Ed Mullen and Jim Sullivan both participated in the first PFC ride that year. Today Ed Mullen is the Chairman of Naples, FL based Pan-Florida Challenge. The PFC has grown into a nonprofit corporation that stages an annual fundraising event held each March, as a two day, 180 mile bike ride across Florida from Naples to Fort Pierce.

Through our fundraising and partnerships, we provide meals to hungry children who do not know where their next meal is coming from. Donations to the Pan-Florida Challenge are tax deductible. Our goal is for 100% of riders’ donations to go towards feeding hungry kids.
