Canal Group is a boutique investment partnership with diversified investments in commercial real estate, primary source venture capital, operating businesses, and marketable securities. We aim to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns by taking an active, value-oriented approach that draws upon the partners' networks and decades of operating experience.
We strive to be an intellectually honest, rigorous, and collegial enterprise, working to reduce complexity and communicate openly to create an environment where trust is deserved because it is earned.
Canal Realty focuses on the acquisition, development, and asset management of commercial real estate. Project types include retail, self-storage, flex, and office uses, and our program includes ground-up speculative, build-to-suit, and sale-leaseback transactions. The partners have a combined 50+ year track record in all aspects of the development process, and employ a creative, hands-on approach that results in superior risk-adjusted returns.
Canal Ventures invests in early-stage growth companies that have demonstrated markets and customers, generally in the Series Seed and A rounds. Our CEO co-founded Blu Venture Investors, one of the most active primary source venture capital firms in the mid-Atlantic region.
Canal Fund aims to achieve capital appreciation through investment in equity and convertible debt instruments of strong businesses with significant free cash flow acquired at a discount to intrinsic value.
