Rocky Point Ventures was founded in 2006 as a private family office in Austin, Texas.  Traditionally, RPV has focused on early-stage investing in technology and biotechnology start-ups. Although RPV continues to make these types of investments, we have also begun to seek buyout opportunities. This website is designed to facilitate this new private equity strategy.

As opposed to private equity funds, RPV is an active investor focusing on acquisitions of lower-middle market businesses in the Texas and Southeast regions.

RPV is guided by the following principles:

  • Effective use of our experience and contacts. Our team has direct knowledge in a wide variety of industries. If we don’t have the experience, we certainly know the person or team who does.
  • Focusing on a small number of deals. Concentrating on fewer deals means more time and energy we can devote to adding value.
  • We believe in growing a business. RPV invests with the intention of increasing market share, not investing in “lifestyle businesses.
  • We deploy “patient capital” with the goal of producing long-term value in our portfolio companies.  We are not in the business of flipping companies, and our management style reflects this long-term philosophy.
