The Prairie Capital Team exemplifies the ideal investment partner in a world where “private equity” has earned such a negative reputation. Their behind the scenes support to help scale businesses and the backing of founding management redefines “private equity” to a term with integrity and values.

Kelly Jastremski, Founder & CEO

Prairie spent quite a bit of time to get to know us, not just the business, early on – and we were able to build a great level of familiarity before we even closed.  Therefore, we went into building this business with a partner we trust, we like…and we have the confidence that their track record will help get us where we want to go with our company.
