• Black and White Underside of a Plane

Acorn Growth Companies is a private equity firm with a relentless drive to achieve superior long-term returns for our investors. We invest in unique aerospace, defense and intelligence companies that strive to keep our nation safe and enable global mobilization. Once an investment is made, we honor our commitment and do not rest until the company realizes its full potential.



In all circumstances, we operate with the highest standards of candor and maintain highly professional adherence to taking right and fair actions.


We define success in the eyes of our investors and are relentless in our efforts to achieve superior, long-term returns. We are decisive—if we fail, we fail fast, learn, redirect and do not repeat.


We solve problems by operating with a balance of analytical precision, practical experience and common-sense judgment, while always seeking simple solutions to complex problems.


We are disciplined—whatever we propose and agree to, we will execute on. We practice self and peer accountability and develop expertise and credibility only from performance, not talk.


We are grateful for the opportunity to work as a team and the privilege to be part of a broader mission. We believe in continuous improvement, learning and self-development. We put aside individual gain and focus our energy on moving our company and investments forward.
