The Capstreet Culture Code

In everything we do, we hold ourselves to the highest standards and act with our core values in mind. We call these core values our Capstreet Culture Code. They’re an extension of who we are and are critical to our success.

We cultivate partnership in everything we do and every interaction we have.

We act quickly to engage with portfolio companies and believe strong financial outcomes are the result, rather than the objective, of building great businesses.

 

We cherish and practice transparency at all levels, doing what we say and sharing knowledge with others where appropriate.

We foster lifelong learning to adapt to changing environments, stay competitive, foster a growth mindset, and boost creative problem-solving.

We empower our employees to take ownership, facilitating trust, critical thinking, and adjustments where necessary.

We use data and strive for continuous improvement to make positive long-term impact.

 Culture Code

Testimonials and endorsements of portfolio company executives and/or business owners are provided to demonstrate the benefits of working with the Capstreet team. They are not provided to solicit investors or to illustrate investment experience with Capstreet. Executives featured in the testimonials and endorsements receive a salary and economics from their respective portfolio company. No executives were paid for their testimonial or endorsement. There is a conflict of interest in these unpaid testimonials and endorsements in that all executives stand to benefit from Capstreet’s success and their company is owned or partially owned by a Capstreet fund.
