Acorn Growth Companies Recognized as Finalist for Venture of the Year

Acorn Growth Companies, a private equity firm focused exclusively on aerospace and defense opportunities, has been selected as a finalist for The Oklahoma Business Roundtable’s Venture of the Year.

Acorn Growth Companies partner Jeff Davis commented, “Being selected as a finalist is an honor, and we are humbled to be considered for such a prestigious award. Since our inception, we’ve developed a strong portfolio of aerospace and defense companies. It’s rewarding to be recognized for our efforts in building one of the premier aerospace and defense focused private equity firms.”

The Oklahoma Venture Forum (OVF), a non-profit organization that promotes Oklahoma’s economic growth, evaluated nominees based on a number of criteria including capital raised, profitability, and management quality. Past award recipients include the Chesapeake Energy Corporation, StairMaster, and IMTEC (now part of 3M). OVF will select the winner and present the award at a banquet following the Bricktown Capital Conference on 26 October.

Acorn Growth Companies has over $100 million under management and operating companies across the United States with operations worldwide – all under its primary banner, AGC Aerospace & Defense.
