The AGSM Opportunity Fund
is a private equity program which is implemented and managed by AGSM, LLC for the purpose of investing in or acquiring small to medium sized privately held companies. AGSM focuses on providing growth capital for early stage businesses that are privately held companies with revenues of approximately $500,000 to $10 million. AGSM believes the micro market segment has been largely ignored by larger private equity firms and presents a unique investment opportunity. Through management and financial support, sales growth strategies, and operational improvements, AGSM strives to position these companies to excel to a level where they could be sold to larger private equity funds or strategic buyers, resulting in superior returns for Investors.
The primary focus is on technology-oriented businesses with extensive intellectual property that provide the opportunity to create value based on the vision and knowledge of the on-site management team, and their ability to leverage additional capital. AGSM expects to add value as a strategic partner with the management teams by making available the skills and experience of AGSM’s Managing Directors and Program Advisors. AGSM will also selectively consider supporting unique start-up opportunities.

Our Core Values
Many companies tout their core values publicly and use them as a marketing piece; rarely do company “core values” reflect the true core values of the individuals comprising the company.
At AGSM, our confidence in our performance is derived from knowing that the owners, directors and managers all share certain core values that serve as the basis of all of our decisions. When difficult times arise, we can turn to these core values, the essence of who we are collectively, for guidance:
