Our Companies

The BPV partners have spent their careers building and investing in outstanding companies throughout Florida, the Southeast, and Texas.

We invest in a diversified group of industries that we believe have favorable growth and investment characteristics, and in which both the BPV Partners and our partners at Raymond James Financial have substantial knowledge and experience. These industries include health care, software, technology-enabled business services, communications, and consumer products and services.

A credible partner will encourage you to speak with as many of their entrepreneur partners as you can – some successful, some less so – in order to get a feel for what they are like to work with in good times and when challenges arise.

At BPV, we invest first and foremost in people. Our experience shows that by partnering with outstanding entrepreneurs with experience, vision and integrity, we can invest across a broad range of industries and help our entrepreneur partners generate attractive investment returns for both themselves and their investors.
