We take a highly curated approach to investing that leverages our operating experience to partner with exceptional entrepreneurial leaders to find, acquire, and grow companies into market leaders. Riviera Capital is interested in profitable businesses that compete in markets that are undergoing change – change created by industry trends, economic cycles, or specific company conditions that create favorable long-term growth. We look for companies that have steep barriers to entry and a wide moat protecting their business from exogenous factors such as price elasticity and material labor issues.
