Investment Approach

We understand what it takes to
develop and accelerate growth.

We have decades of experience building impactful partnerships with businesses delivering high-value, technology-enabled solutions and services to government and education clients. We understand what it takes to develop and accelerate growth because we have done it time and time again as both operators and investors.

How We Succeed

We run Attain Capital on three core principles:
Operator Led. Market Obsessed. People Focused.

We are Operator Led

With a deep understanding of what it takes to build, grow, and successfully transition a company to the next level, our results prove that our operationally-focused approach creates sustainable value. We’ve done it—time and time again.

We are Market Obsessed

With decades of experience not only building businesses in government and education, our experts hold numerous leadership roles in industry-government associations resulting in unparalleled relationships and reputation.

We are People Focused

We prioritize always doing the right thing for our stakeholders, our team members, and our communities. Every great company begins and ends with its people and its relationships, so we cultivate both every day.
