Mangrove Equity Partners, LP is a Tampa, Florida-based lower middle-market private equity firm. Its founding principals have a 40+ year collective reputation as effective, fair, flexible, and honorable partners to company owners and managers.

From our captive equity funds, we sponsor owners and operators in management buy-outs, management buy-ins, majority recapitalizations, family succession recaps, and industry consolidations. We have the financial resources and deal experience to efficiently close transactions. We also have substantial operating experience and a collaborative approach to build value at the companies with whom we partner. Mangrove is the ideal partner for liquidity and growth for companies in our target size range. What makes Mangrove different is the full measure of what we bring to our portfolio partners: character, experience, ability, and the desire to help our portfolio partners prosper.
