JMI Equity is a growth equity firm focused on investing in leading software companies. Founded in 1992, JMI has invested in 165 businesses in its target markets, successfully completed over 110 exits, and raised more than $6 billion of committed capital. JMI partners with exceptional management teams to help build their companies into industry leaders.
JMI target markets are characterized by attractive fundamentals: modest capital requirements, low cost of goods sold, high barriers to entry and high switching costs. These industries are highly fragmented and maintain continuous cycles of innovation.
JMI invests only in markets we know exceptionally well and in select opportunities where our skills and experience can help management teams build significant businesses. JMI has developed a primary research process to identify investment opportunities.
JMI is an active investor. Our portfolio companies have distinguished themselves with proven business models and we partner with management teams to build industry leaders. We always take seats on the boards of our portfolio companies and we assist with strategic planning, executive recruiting, capital allocation, acquisitions and liquidity options. Typical JMI investments range from $20 million to $200 million.
JMI believes in a long-term perspective with our investments. We are committed to helping our companies succeed and have invested successfully at all stages in the business lifecycle. We provide capital for growth, recapitalizations, acquisitions and buyouts.
JMI’s investment team currently consists of 30 investment professionals located across Baltimore/DC and San Diego. In addition, JMI has a operations team and network of consultants who work closely with the investment team to add value to portfolio companies.
