Firefly Entrepreneurial Toolkit Investment Initiative

Firefly helps companies and individuals reach their full potential. We bring this mission to life by partnering with strong leadership teams in growth-oriented, lower-middle market businesses. Since 2013, our team has invested in 10 companies.  We have a proven track record of honoring our commitments, sticking to our core values, and being an effective and fun partner to leadership teams.
