Culbro, LLC is the private equity investment effort of the Cullman and Bloomingdale families. It was formed to invest in growth companies with strong entrepreneurial management and was founded post the sale of General Cigar, a company owned by the Cullman family for over 40 years.
Culbro is not a fund and does not have a specific investment horizon. Its target equity investment range is $5 to $15 million with latitude to make both smaller and larger investments. It invests on both a control and minority basis.
Although Culbro’s three co-founders have a background in consumer products, Culbro has invested in a wide range of industries. Culbro focuses geographically on North America and India.
