Altitude Capital Partners is a leading private investment firm focused on investing $250 million of capital in businesses which own compelling intellectual property assets.
We seek to invest in portfolio companies that have valuable patents, trademarks/brands, copyrights, royalty streams, trade secrets, and other intangible assets which will create a competitive advantage in creating value. We possess the investment flexibility to provide common equity, preferred stock, subordinated or secured debt which allows our portfolio companies to fund working capital for organic growth, acquisitions, strategic IP licensing / litigation activities or to facilitate distributions to existing shareholders. Our goal is to combine our private equity investment experience and our value added intellectual property expertise to be the premier investors for understanding the opportunities and risks associated with intellectual property assets.
Altitude is well capitalized and positioned to provide a wide array of financial structures and solutions through its committed private equity fund, Altitude Capital Partners, L.P.
