Lafayette Square's flagship product provides senior secured loans and other flexible capital solutions to middle market businesses across the United States. We have a track record of helping companies grow while minimizing dilution.
Our strategy focuses on place, with local presence across the country. This enables companies to work with experienced professionals with access to resources in their home markets.
What We Do
Our solution is simple: we work with entrepreneurs to create capital solutions tailored to their business needs. Beyond capital, all portfolio companies receive access to Worker Solutions, which provides data, services, and consultation to promote economic opportunity for their employees.
We seek to provide similar levels of institutional resources and value-add as a private equity firm, but with a less-dilutive and long-term partnership approach.
Long-Term, Partnership-Based Approach
Lafayette Square works with entrepreneurs and management teams to provide institutional-grade resources and capital to help businesses grow.
Lafayette Square takes a non-dilutive approach to investing by keeping ownership and control in the hands of founders and management teams.
Beyond just economic support, Worker Solutions coordinates empowering services that enable businesses to support their employees’ financial health and their path to achieving long-term goals related to ownership and wealth creation.
