Evaluate Potential Investment

Learn About
Selling

For most owners, selling a business is a once-in-a-lifetime event. Our objective is to demystify what some peers try to present as a complicated process. It’s nuanced and hard to sell a company, but it isn’t rocket science. The resources below should be helpful to you whether you choose to sell to us or anyone else.

Get to Know

Our Midwest-based firm invests with no intention of selling in family-built companies with durable value propositions, strong leadership, and ambition for the future. Our operating philosophy is oriented around long-term sustainability and success, not short-term scale. In the private equity world, we’re weird — and content with it.
