More Than Just A Check
AGS Capital was founded in Indianapolis in 2002 by Alan Symons. Mr. Symons has decades of investment and operational experience across a broad range of industries, purchasing his first company in 1972. He is a Limited Partner in several area funds, but found his interest and skills more aligned with direct investment. An AGS investment is more than just a check, we add value with not only our capital contributions, but we provide management resources, strategic support and perspective to portfolio companies during their most critical stages of business development.
Fundamentally, we believe good companies are built, not born. Execution creates the real value, and we have a history of identifying and then building successful, profitable businesses. We take an active role in building our investments. AGS utilizes an existing infrastructure to create value. Our executive level management, financial & accounting services, marketing skills, along with Human Resources & experienced IT support provides the resources to help companies grow or recover to profitability. AGS offers proven operational history with significant transactional experience.
