Welcome to Princeton Capital Partners

Princeton Capital Partners is an investment firm formed to provide a unique approach to fostering value creation and strategic support for smaller, undervalued public healthcare companies. The partners and advisors of Princeton Capital Partners have five decades of expertise in enhancing operations to drive margin expansion, cash flow, and sales growth. We also have the discipline and hands-on experience to engage in turn-around situations.

Our Strategy

Founded in December 2008, Princeton Capital Partners has a unique and successful track record of equity preservation while demonstrating value creation and strategic support for smaller, undervalued public healthcare companies. We typically only make one new investment per quarter and hold concentrated positions in a handful of companies. Princeton Capital Partners tends to be the largest or one of the largest investors in the companies in which we invest. Since we were founded, Princeton Capital has made thirty-four investments, sixteen of which have been acquired by third parties. We focus on companies that we perceive as offering asymmetric risk with limited downside through strong balance sheets, unique assets and scale coupled with significant upside through clearly defined and achievable operational improvements, structural changes, or other catalysts.

Our Managing Partners each have over twenty years of experience in healthcare with deep operational, financial, M&A, sales, and marketing expertise. We work with the existing senior management at our portfolio companies to help them improve operations, enhance company credibility and positioning, and create long-term shareholder value. We are able to provide help both internally and through our broad network of healthcare professionals. We benefit by being aligned with management, providing objective and fresh thoughts and strategy, and helping them as much as possible. Princeton Capital Partners is based on the principle of patient but constructive long-term investments and strong, mutually beneficial partnerships with our portfolio companies.
