Who We Are

Muir & Associates, Inc. is a diversified operations management and private equity firm. We engage with startup and early-stage companies, working with inventors and entrepreneurs to define their customer segment, and execute on value proposition and market entry strategy. We support the senior management teams of small and midsize companies in accomplishing operational restructuring and improvements.We incubate and spin out companies that operate on an integrated software and services model.

Muir & Associates looks for opportunities to engage in sectors where delivery of valuable goods or services is beset with process and cost inefficiencies. We analyze the situation, identify and engage with stakeholders at every link in the value chain, and seek to identify ‘pain points’ and corresponding process improvements. The end result in terms of our involvement might be the creation of a new company, or taking on a strategic management consultancy role in support of an entrenched industry player.

Muir & Associates is ideally situated in Charlottesville, Virginia, a thriving community of private equity funds, venture capital firms and startup incubators, with the University of Virginia as its engine of innovation.  Our founder and Chief Executive Officer holds a teaching affiliation within UVA’s School of Engineering and Applied Science, consistent with our mission to provide intellectual property creators with the tools and expertise needed to commercialize their ideas, start companies and become job creators.  We live and work at the intersection of innovation and execution.
