Creating Value

We are an operationally-focused private investment firm with successful companies, a proven process and an experienced team.

Specializing in Middle Market Manufacturing and Technology

Founded in 1998, Metro Chicago-based JVA Partners is an operationally focused private investment firm. We create value by investing in human talent, technology, innovation, and operational excellence in middle-market manufacturing and technology companies.

We believe strong thought leadership, broad strategic thinking, focused management oversight, and executional skill development are required for maximum financial returns. As a result, we offer much more than capital. Our partners and associates have deep senior executive management experience and specialized skills which we bring to our portfolio companies.
