A search fund is an investment vehicle through which an entrepreneur raises funds from investors in order to acquire a company in which they wish to take an active, day-to-day leadership role.
A small group of investors back operating managers to search for a target company to acquire. Post acquisition, the general managers of the search fund take operating roles in the acquired company providing for an orderly leadership transition for a retiring entrepreneur.
We have cultivated a rolodex and extensive network of Search Funds who we actively stay in touch with due to their heightened interests in attractive Canadian-based private market opportunities.Contact us to learn our insight when considering growth equity or an outright sale of your business.
