Thompson Street Capital Partners is a St. Louis-based private equity firm focused on investing in founder-led middle market businesses.

We’ve found the best way to learn is by listening

If we’re going to work together it’s important that we know your business – and can talk to you on your terms. The only way for us to do that is to listen carefully and absorb information. Then, when the time is right, we can come in knowledgably with ideas about how, as your partner, we might go about quickly adding even greater value to the operation.

Hands on or hands off – it’s up to you

We understand that the seller is likely the ultimate expert on the business. That’s why it isn’t our practice to come in and “take over,” but rather, to support management with our expertise, to the degree most productive for everyone.

Cutting through the complications

Once you’ve decided to sell part or all of your business, you might brace for an avalanche of complications. It doesn’t have to be that way. Thompson Street has the proven ability to keep the process quick, and often surprisingly smooth.
