NRD Capital is reinventing private equity by seeking ways to add value to companies beyond simply providing capital. The firm's focus on innovation and outstanding unit economics, combined with an operator-centric approach, has led to rapid growth. With a primary focus on restaurants, technologies, and service/retail opportunities, NRD Capital uniquely infuses both capital and operating experience into its investments. The fund invests in small to mid-sized brands (franchise and non-franchise), both domestic and international, which have the potential to deliver exceptional returns.
Helping others improve their quality of life is a defining ethic of both founder Aziz Hashim and the NRD Capital team. Through the NRD Foundation ("NRDF"), NRD Capital supports non-profit and for-profit international organizations that create entrepreneurs, foster financial independence, and power academic research focused on franchise entrepreneurship.
