We invest in companies with a proven, recurring revenue business model and the potential to be a market leader. We look for opportunities to accelerate top line growth both organically, through best practices, and inorganically, through accretive M&A.


We're big fans of mission-critical B2B Software and Business Services assets with a competitive moat, a sticky and diversified customer base.


Whether the business is bootstrapped, a division of a larger private organization, publicly traded or operating with a modest amount of previous capital investment, Bloom is completely agnostic to the structure.

For Founders & Owners.

  • We’re focused on maintaining your legacy across brand, customers, and the team

  • We seek to create value through operational improvements in the business and investments in various growth levers, both organically and through M&A

  • Flexible deal structure to provide both immediate liquidity as well as a option for a lucrative “second bite at the apple” down the road

  • We encourage founders or sellers to take board roles post close if staying on with the next growth chapter of the business

  • We’re a lean and nimble team who will close fast

For Intermediaries.

  • We’re investing from an institutional committed capital base, with the speed and nimble execution of a lean lower middle market deal team 

  • We have the ability to close quickly and to focus on business diligence (we can close with equity capital and refinance the capital structure afterward when needed)

  • Will invest in near break-even cash flow businesses with a need for operational change or improvements where traditional private equity won’t play, or in lower growth businesses where growth equity won’t play.

  • We're strategically focused on B2B enterprise software and technology enabled services

  • Differentiated approach through our hands-on operational perspective to diligence
