About TPE

A private equity investor in small buyout and growth equity investments in profitable healthcare and software companies.

TPE is a private equity investor in small buyout and growth equity investments in profitable healthcare and software companies. We are active investors, often represented on the Board of Directors. We have served as Directors, Board Chairman, Executive Chairman and even CEOs of our companies on an as-needed basis.

The Managing Partner of TPE is Craig Jones, a 30-year veteran of the private equity and venture capital fields. He has served on the Board’s of 50 companies over the past 30 years and experienced every outcome from write-offs to 15X returns. Over time TPE has narrowed its focus to only two fields, healthcare and software. The healthcare investment focus includes healthcare services, healthcare IT, healthcare payment management systems, and other healthcare business services. In software and Internet driven companies, TPE invests in enterprise software, SaaS, and Internet B2B companies.

TPE typically invests as part of syndicate mostly in majority purchases of companies with $4.0 to $40.0 million in revenue and at least $2.0 million in EBITDA. Occasionally TPE also participates in growth equity minority investments in profitable companies in these niches. We seek to provide liquidity to founders and early investors and to help in the transition of management if necessary. With professionals in the Denver and Boston area, we invest anywhere in the U.S.
