L Squared Overview

L Squared seeks to make long-term investments in leading growth companies that operate in targeted sectors: Education Technology, Tech-Enabled Services & Software, and Industrial Technology & Services.

We have over 125 years of collective experience investing in rapidly growing companies. Since its founding in July of 2014, L Squared has raised four funds and accepted commitments of over $2 billion from its investors.

Our unique investor base of primarily family offices enables us to focus on long-term value creation driven by revenue and earnings growth, not financial engineering. We build flexible capital structures around each investment.

We empower our management team partners to execute their vision while playing a collaborative role to help address the challenges that rapidly growing businesses encounter.
