Harbor Light Capital Partners works hard to partner with our founders and entrepreneurs to develop operating plans to capture market opportunities and maximize their long term growth potential. By doing this, we focus on providing the appropriate amount of capital to our portfolio companies for their particular phase of development, and look to be a lifecycle investor over the course of their maturation and growth. We are not forced to limit our investments to a specific time horizon. Instead we provide “patient capital” to build sustainable, high growth businesses. We are actively engaged board members and leverage our extensive network throughout New England and the Intermountain West to support our portfolio companies. Our philosophy is to provide the “commitment, capital, and collaboration” to build exceptional businesses that will be the next generation of industry leaders.
Harbor Light Capital Partners traces its origins to MARKEM Corporation which was founded in 1911 by F.A. Putnam. Under the skilled leadership of the family’s five succeeding generations, MARKEM became a worldwide leader in innovative printing technologies. Today, Harbor Light Capital Partners carries forward the values and expertise that made MARKEM a leading global business, including a strong belief in community support and involvement. The members of the Harbor Light Capital Partners team are proud to be involved in a number of philanthropic initiatives including The Putnam Foundation, Silicon Couloir, Teton Science Schools, the Wyoming Business Council and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.
