TAU transforms supply chains.

TAU is a private equity firm established to generate above-market returns by upgrading global supply chains. Through our transformational approach, we seek to increase manufacturers’ profitability and scale, improve the environment and the lives of workers, and deliver superior returns to investors.

TAU disrupts global industries.

Our first fund targets the global garment and textile industry. We engage brands and retailers in order to identify investable suppliers and provide a secure market for companies post-investment, while implementing a comprehensive operations strategy designed to enable investee companies to become strongly profitable and sustainable industry leaders.

TAU catalyzes systemic change.

We create the suppliers of the future in industries where buyers increasingly demand bigger, better, faster, cleaner, more transparent vendors. Our highly structured investments will drive upgrades in suppliers’ infrastructure, technology, process, skills and capabilities, while providing liquidity and incentives to capital-constrained owners. By implementing a tested range of sustainability and worker training initiatives, we aim to increase margins and improve social, environmental, and other compliance metrics.

TAU accelerates the inevitable.

TAU orchestrates and implements capitalist solutions to capitalism’s failures. Our custom-built, purpose-driven team identifies opportunities to bring capital and expertise to transform producers into the leading sustainable competitors operating at scale in their industries. We will invest to create the supply chains of the future.
