Weatherford Capital closes first fund at USD355m

Private investment firm Weatherford Capital has closed Weatherford Capital Fund I, which was oversubscribed with USD355 million in commitments from a diverse group of investors.

“Companies are increasingly seeking investors who can serve as genuine strategic partners in addition to providing capital,” says Will Weatherford, Managing Partner of Weatherford Capital and former Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives. “We’re building our firm to be long-term partners to great companies, and we’re deeply humbled by the confidence our limited partners are showing in us. As a family-owned firm, we understand that trust is our cornerstone, and we look forward to continuing to honor the trust of our partners and investors.”

Weatherford Capital focuses on rapidly growing technology and technology-enabled companies with a business-to-business (B2B) or business-to-government (B2G) focus, as well as those operating in highly regulated industries. As part of the Weatherford portfolio, companies have access to an experienced team dedicated to their success. Weatherford Capital also works closely with an expansive network of founders, advisors and executives who are committed to helping management teams scale and develop their businesses.

“Our experience at the highest levels of sports, business, finance, and public service enables us to build and support teams that drive transformational growth,” says Drew Weatherford, Founding Partner of Weatherford Capital. “We believe our breadth of relationships and expertise across sectors allows us to navigate today’s disruptive business landscape, identify valuable investment opportunities, and maximise the impact of our investments.”

Weatherford Capital seeks to partner with those who share a desire to have a positive and lasting impact in the world. "We partner with companies that both create value and promote human flourishing," says Founding Partner Sam Weatherford. "The ethos of our firm flows from a shared commitment to faith, family, community, and excellence. This is the Weatherford Way. As a family-owned and values-driven firm, we believe that the way we win matters.”
