    Minority-Owned Investment Manager

    Headquartered in Newark, NJ

    Born and raised in New Jersey, we believe it is our duty to give back to our roots. We are located on 572 Broad Street, in the heart of Newark, NJ. We literally have our feet in the action.


    Golden Door focuses on investing in Opportunity Zones like Newark to incentivize long-term investments in underserved communities. We are the leading minority-owned investment manager focused in these regions.

    Investing in Opportunity Zones

    Deferring Capital Gains

    Newark has a long and undervalued history in America. As the largest city in NJ, Newark is equipped to lead the state into a new age. The city lacks the resources to develop on its own and requires external capital. The Opportunity Act gives investors the ability to temporarily defer capital gains and a step-up in cost basis. Three tax incentives when investing in a Qualified Opportunity Fund:

    • Temporary capital gains tax deferral
    • Step-up in your taxable cost basis
    • Permanent exclusion of capital gains



  • Investment Criteria

    Below is what we look for in target companies:


    • +10 years in business
    • Recurring B2B revenue


    • $1-25m in revenue
    • $500k-3m in EBITDA


    • Owner seeking liquidity
    • Majority, Control Buyout


    • Professional Services
    • Tech-enabled Services
