Jake Capps has been a private equity investor for two decades with a passion for the consumer sector. Jake founded Meaningful Partners to create an investment platform with a community of accomplished executives all devoted to serving others to empower and accelerate growth in leaders who will define the next generation with a commitment to positive purpose. Prior to starting Meaningful Partners, Jake worked at three large private equity firms where he had the pleasure of connecting with hundreds of talented founders, CEOs, operators, executives and beyond with a wide range of superpowers and domain expertise across the consumer sector. Through this, Jake developed pattern recognition of what it takes to build a sustainable consumer business (and what to avoid). Jake has led or co-led investments in dozens of companies deploying over $1.5 billion of equity capital. Jake is originally from Texas but now resides in Manhattan Beach, CA with his high school sweetheart (now wife) and three awesome children. Jake holds a BA from Dartmouth College where he was co-captain of the Men’s basketball team and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
