Who | We are a small, hands-on management team
We get our hands dirty. We work in the business, alongside your existing employees, to get the right people and processes in place so the business can continue to grow as you, the owner(s), step away.
What | We don't invest in industries, we invest in great companies
We care less about what industry you are in, and more about what your story is. We look for businesses with a solid product, a great team, an exceptional track record, and EBITDA of $500K to $1.5M per year.
How | We invest in or acquire small & mid-market companies
We invest with our own money into Ontario companies that will be around for the next 50 years. We are happy to invest alongside your existing management teams as part of a management buy out (MBO), or we can can acquire the business directly from you.
We've invested in or acquired 12 small & mid-market companies since 2016
