Our Game Plan



Home Plate’s strategy and process are the culmination of over 100 years of combined experience in venture, private equity investing, mergers & acquisitions advisory services, equity research, investment banking, and senior management. Collectively, our sponsors, board members and advisors have sat on numerous public and private company boards, while sourcing and providing diligence for a variety of transactions. Two have led successful public offerings as Chief Executive Officers.
