Peppertree Capital Management

Peppertree Capital Management, Inc. is a private equity firm focused on making investments in growing communication infrastructure companies, both in the United States and internationally.

Peppertree’s core investment thesis is that the demand for data will overwhelm the wireless networks for the foreseeable future. Our mission is to discover ways to capitalize on that thesis, including by investing in companies that own the towers, the wireless spectrum and the fiber networks that make your mobile phone work.
