About Tenet

Who Are We?

Tenet Investment Company is an investment manager deploying capital to pursue early stage, growth, and buy out opportunities in private markets.

Our early-stage investments are focused on innovative, typically technology enabled companies operating in high impact sectors across the globe, such as financial services, education, healthcare, food and agribusiness, logistics/mobility and other technology pure-plays.
We seek entrepreneurs that are change makers driven by a passion to transform industries, improve lives and create prosperity.

Our later-stage strategy is focused on lower middle-market companies in the US where we see an opportunity to not only help companies with domestic growth but also international growth using our contacts and experience.
