Supporting growth

We believe every business can grow.

That’s why we’ve developed the Lyceum Growth Model, a systematic and structured approach to achieving organic growth and making a positive difference to every business we back.

We’ve also built a dedicated team of in-house Development professionals and a network of Industrial Partners who have extensive practical experience of helping businesses overcome growth challenges.

Applying the Lyceum Growth Model, our team supports portfolio companies in all key areas of business management and growth. We also provide follow-on capital to fund investment in people, processes and infrastructure.

Acceleration through acquisition

We’ve completed more than 110 add-on acquisitions to date – an average of five for each of our portfolio companies.

We support all of our portfolio companies to expand through acquisition as well as organically.

These acquisitions help extend geographic reach, build scale and add functionality – creating valuable, market-leading businesses.


I’ve worked with a number of private equity firms but Lyceum is different. Many firms talk about teamwork, but those like Lyceum that create genuine partnerships are rare.
