Black Dragon Capital℠

Black Dragon Capital℠ (“BDC”, “Black Dragon℠”), a high-performing private equity firm founded and led by a diverse manager and team who have a track record of outstanding operating and investment success in growth sectors disrupted by digitization, and its portfolio company Grass Valley, a trusted partner to many of the biggest and most creative names in the media and entertainment business, today announced their return to in-person trade show this year at CABSAT, bringing awareness on the impact of the global pandemic on the media and technology industry.

Amidst a once in a century crisis and accelerated digitization of the media industry, the importance of standing with our community has never been greater. We are excited to be back on the road again supporting our portfolio company Grass Valley and the greater media technology community that we have been a part of for decades. Black Dragon℠ focuses on more complicated mid-market technology investments that are in high growth areas but are being disrupted by accelerated digitization, and where navigating these opportunities successfully creates significant value. We are eager to reconnect with friends and close partners from the region.

Louis Hernandez Jr., Founder, CEO of Black Dragon Capital℠

Black Dragon Capital℠ was created to establish the generation of private equity investing. The firm’s unique operationally led model includes a team of high performing executives with a combination of operational and investment success, a focus on complicated mid-market technology control investments, a highly gender and ethnically diverse team, and a focus on high growth areas being disrupted through digitization, which has resulted in well above market financial returns. The Black Dragon Toolkit℠, a set of operational tools, templates, and guidelines, has a proven track record helping executives navigate the digital disruption of mid-market technology companies and creating market leaders. The Toolkit has been hardened over decades of operating and investing in technology.

In a digitized age, the role of media has never been more important. We want to bring awareness of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the media industry. Whether to join in person or virtually is a decision each individual or organization must make, but story-telling has always been part of our social fabric and is fundamental to human experience. These shared stories and experiences are the foundation of our cultures.
