Shorehill Capital Recognized Again by Inc. Magazine as a Founder-Friendly Investor

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – October 27, 2021


Shorehill Capital LLC (“Shorehill”) is very pleased to announce our inclusion in Inc. magazine’s 2021 list of top Founder-Friendly Investors.  Since 2019 Inc. has annually published its list of the investors with a track record of success backing entrepreneurs, and Shorehill has appeared on the select list in each year.    The list appears in the magazine’s October 2021 issue, and Shorehill is one of the few private equity firms listed that focus on investing in lower middle market industrial companies.


“Shorehill Capital is delighted to be recognized by Inc. for our approach to working with entrepreneurs to help take their businesses to the next level,” said Dave Hawkins, Managing Partner.  “From our first discussions with entrepreneurs, we commit to building genuine partnerships and working shoulder-to-shoulder with them to create value for all stakeholders.  We are heartened to see that our partners recognize that this commitment is more than just rhetoric.  We know that this trusting relationship is tested daily, and our mutual efforts over the last eighteen months to work through the pandemic have been great examples of this true partnership.”


Over the last twelve months, the Shorehill team has worked closely with several entrepreneurs to grow their businesses.
