Bain Capital is one of the foremost private equity firms in the nation. It invests money in people with ideas who want to start new businesses and in businesses that are struggling or that want to expand. Bain itself employs about 115 employees. The companies it has helped create, build up and save from bankruptcy employ hundreds of thousands.
