Axum has established well-defined investment criteria. We seek control investments in companies in which we can leverage our industry expertise to drive strong profitable growth. 


The basic tenets of our investment criteria include the following:


  • Target established businesses with less than $100 million in sales
  • Focus on recession resistant markets that are poised for long term growth

-          Food and Beverage (limited service restaurants)

-          Education Services

-         Other markets that focus on critical consumer or business needs and have demonstrated resilience through economic cycles

  • History of strong and stable financial performance
  • Identifiable growth prospects
  • Sustainable competitive advantage
  • Strong management team with a demonstrated track record of success
  • The Axum team can create value post close through its industry experts or its access to the professional athlete community
