Investment Success and Operating Knowledge

Based in South Florida, Goense Capital Partners follows an uncommon path when investing in and growing companies. We don’t utilize a fund; we invest our own money. We view ourselves as partners in the success of the companies in which we invest. As partners, we view our role as providing the capital, resources and strategic guidance needed to foster growth.

About us

The principals each have nearly 30 years investing; partners for 24 years

We invest our own capital, we are all in. We don’t invest with the intention of a “quick flip” exit. We have the capital and patience needed to support long-term growth in the companies in which we invest. When we partner with a company, we commit to existing management. Why? It’s because we don’t invest in companies unless we have a high degree of confidence in the ability of existing management to be ongoing partners in our mutual success.
