At Maddix Capital, we pride ourselves in looking, feeling, and operating different than the traditional private equity model. We are a spin-out of SkyLab Ventures, a $30M growth-to-exit venture capital fund.

We bring real world operational, investment, and execution experience along with a unique shared services model to enable businesses to scale and grow efficiently.

The Team

Meet

Jesse Silva

General Partner

Jesse Silva is an investor, venture capitalist, entrepreneur, and operator. Coming from a lower-middle class background, Jesse founded a small towing company and worked three jobs to support it. Over a decade, he completed 150+ acquisitions and grew Alpha Towing to over a nine-figure valuation. Jesse sold the company and attracted the interest of financial institutions and national brands to replicate his successful system and structure. He has consulted as an asset manager in risky acquisitions, consulted with Little Caesars, and founded SkyLab Ventures, a $30M growth-to-exit venture capital fund.

Jake Gubler

 Director

Jake Gubler is well-versed in M&A, private / public capital raises, and corporate advisory. Prior to joining Maddix, Jake was the Manager of Corporate Development at Owlet (NYSE: OWLT), where he led M&A, partnership, and strategic analyses and execution efforts. Prior to Owlet, Jake spent time as an investment banker at Bank of America and Wells Fargo, and as an analyst at Peterson Partners, a lower-middle market private equity fund. Over the course of his career, Jake has executed ~$10 billion of cumulative M&A and equity / debt transactions, primarily across the technology and consumer / retail industries.

“As a former founder and operator who sold my bootstrapped business to a private equity fund, I appreciate all the strings that typically come with raising external capital. Maddix is here to break the model and create outcomes that are optimal for founders and investors alike”
