The defense and government services market has a newly-launched private equity name that will focus on opportunities for investments in and acquisitions of lower middle market companies.
Godspeed Capital Management unveiled itself Wednesday and said it will partner with East Rock Capital to identify opportunities for potential control buyouts, buy-and-builds, corporate carve-outs and special situations.
New York City-headquartered East Rock Capital manages approximately $2.5 billion in assets on behalf of a select group of high net-worth families.
Douglas Lake Jr., formerly a partner at DC Capital Partners, is the founder and managing partner of Godspeed Capital.
Joining Lake to help stand up Godspeed Capital are partner Nathaniel Fogg, principal Ahmed Abdel-Saheb and associate Jake Silman.
Fogg most recently was president of his own lower middle-market defense and government services advisory firm in Fogg Capital, Abdel-Saheb previously was VP at investment bank Greenhill & Co. and Sliman is a former private equity associate at Accel-KKR.
