Slide background

Scaling companies with entrepreneurs who are defining their industries


"As the Founder and CEO of Lavu, I was approached by a number of private equity and investment firms. However, Aldrich stood out from the beginning. The difference maker was its people. Their managing partner, Mirza Baig, is a serial entrepreneur himself and knows what it means to run a business like mine..."

CEO, Lavu


Formidable Access to Customers & Partners


"The hardest part of building a company are the unknown unknowns...capital alone can’t address these challenges, ...only by having experienced advisors around you can these unknowns become known..."

Deputy Dean, MIT Sloan School of Management

Navigating the Unknown


"As our business was rapidly growing, our operations were being stretched to meet customer needs. Both Mirza and Raz got involved in helping us to build out our revenue cycle function, service delivery infrastructure and putting in place a world-class finance operation..."

President, Imaging Advantage


Scaling to 10x ++


"For a founder-run business like PhishMe, the team at Aldrich Capital have been great partners. Given that the Principals of ACP are former CEOs & entrepreneurs themselves, the advice they share is all the more impactful, since they’ve been "in our shoes" and understand what it means to run a company..."

CEO and Co-Founder, PhishMe


Strategic Insights From Fellow Operators


"I have worked with the partners at Aldrich in multiple businesses and they have helped accelerate growth & profitability of each business by getting customers, hiring talented executives and building the right channel partnerships - PE firms talk about value-add, these guys consistently deliver."

CEO, Medical Diagnostic Imaging Group

Meaningful Networks & Relationships That Drive Growth


"Often times entrepreneurs miss out on one of the biggest values an investor or an advisor can bring - deep operational experience from high growth, high stakes, and high velocity companies. This often from a point of view that exposes bigger opportunities or weaknesses that can help shape or change the trajectory of the company."

Chief People Officer, HubSpot
