Investors Give Money.
Employees Give Time.
Partners Give Both.

Operating Partner

As entrepreneurs ourselves, we are accustomed to rolling up our sleeves and operating alongside founding teams cost-effectively. Our team of dedicated operators helps management teams grow faster while wearing fewer hats. If we are successful, it is only because our partners successfully reached their goals. 

Growth Partner

As investors, we believe growth is the result of scalable business infrastructure. That's what we invest in. Traction in the marketplace matters, especially with transactions on the horizon. Aided by an equity infusion, Our business development team is committed to building new pipelines, growth channels, brand awareness, and sales teams.

We are always looking forward to investing capital into businesses we love, trust and have already worked to help build. Whether it's with us or another entity, our commitment is to see you reach the finish line.

Soma Partners is a collective of entrepreneurs, investment bankers, and business operators who have come together to advance entrepreneurship. Our mission is to invest in companies and founders committed to excellence and integrity. We are passionate about empowering small and early businesses to succeed.

Our team of experienced owners and operators is committed to helping businesses bridge the gap, from scale through sale.
