A fundamental key to success in building any business is the necessary background in the industry. When choosing a company to invest in and form partnerships with, we take a thorough look at the owner(s) and the team they have assembled. We only go into industries we understand and have considerable expertise in. We only partner with individuals that have similar credentials. You might say, we are investing in the people first and their business second. It needs to be a good fit for both and a partnership that can go the distance.
The recession we’ve come through has made us all better business owners and managers. That evolution was a necessity to survive and prosper. And though the values of enterprises are down across the board, the opportunities to grow and prosper are still here...maybe now more than ever.
Our approach is one of cautious optimism. We do our due diligence and make an exhaustive assessment before we move forward. We have the collective experience to predetermine the “what if’s” and avoid the pitfalls that many partnerships encounter.
Our ideal fit is a partnership with Canadian companies between 20 million and 200 million in sales. The current owners want to remain in their business and the industry they are involved in is aligned with our board’s experience.
