How We Work
Colonnade Investments (CI) is a growth equity firm that invests in great businesses, not just great concepts. Our approach is to work hand-in-hand with the management team of established companies—over the long-term—to revitalize the business and increase its value.
We are more than investors; we enhance the executive team. We learn the business, customers and corporate culture to help the team make the right decisions to accelerate growth, mitigate risk and ultimately, create value.
Our active management expertise includes:
- Strategic planning
- Balance sheet management and resource allocation
- Operations and systems
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Strategic marketing
- Succession planning
Our approach to investment is based on our firm belief that all successful business partnerships are rooted in mutual respect, open and honest communications, and a commitment to succeed. In a given year, we may only invest in one or two companies because with each one we take the time to get to know you and your business. Our objective is to work in partnership with business owners to achieve the desired goals and maximize the growth opportunity.
