At CID Capital, we love charismatic brands and strong businesses. And more importantly, we love the spirited entrepreneurs behind these companies—they’re our favorite people. That’s why we’re committed to helping them grow.

CID Capital is a private equity group that makes control investments in high-quality, lower-middle-market companies that have shown a consistent track record of success. That’s what we do. But why it matters goes far beyond that description.
