We invest in high growth companies with the potential to out-execute the competition
Hardy Capital is an investment firm established to foster the growth of young businesses. With a history of international transactions including; acquisitions throughout Northern Europe (Sweden, Holland, Germany and the UK), the United States and Asia (Japan, Singapore). Public company listings on the OMX: Europe, TSX: Canada and the NASDAQ: USA. Along with both public and private financing throughout Europe, Asia, and North America.
With significant assets, our mission is to help build and grow businesses that have the potential to achieve market leading positions primarily in the consumer space. We are especially interested in businesses that are disruptive to large very profitable incumbent monopolies and use new technology to improve customer experiences. With acute interest in transactions focused on Optical, Fin-tech, Real estate and Insurance disruption. We understand and can support businesses by helping them navigate the complex nature of growth in the global marketplace and fast-track the company to the right investor or mentor groups.
Hardy Capital seeks returns through equity or debt investments in hyper-growth companies and real estate projects. We also look to identify undervalued companies that may have been missed by larger investors where an unmet need or opportunity exists. We add value to help the company realize its full valuation potential by contributing our experience and vast network of quality experienced relationships. Capital markets in small and micro-cap stocks are “imperfect” at best, and helping smaller undervalued companies get noticed is what we do best.
We have proven expertise in starting, financing, growing and vending several businesses; including building a company from start-up to a NASDAQ listing and cash sale of over $450M in a short time as entrepreneurs. Because we are entrepreneurs at heart, we have a unique ability to add value and create a win-win strategy to help grow a business. We are interested in eCommerce and direct to consumer models where we have considerable experience and can hope to accelerate growth.
We believe founders build great businesses and we believe in partnering and adding value to ensure your business reaches its true potential while helping you avoid many of the missteps that are so easy to make. Many people have Capital, it's not all smart money.
The deal size is between $500,000 and $5 million, with our largest minority investments to date being approximate $15 million and $20 million respectively. Our largest exit to date was $450 million for our controlling stake in Coastal.com.

We look forward to hearing from you,
"We were excited to sell our company to the Hardy Capital team for approximately $70 million and to partner with them to grow the business. Since the acquisition Hardy's team did what they said they would do, adding value in Finance, Marketing and Operations allowing our company to grow and complete an IPO. Today the company is worth more than $300 million valuation less than 24 months later. We would recommend them if you are looking for a private equity group that will add value with integrity." Arshil Abdulla, CEO LD Vision.
"We were pleased to have Roger as an investor and Board Member as we grew our company at hyper speed. He was even there as a customer at critical moments.
