Based in Toronto, Canada, Ashbridge Partners is a privately-held, entrepreneurial investment firm that acquires and actively manages small to medium-sized businesses. Our goal is to partner with successful Canadian business owners who are looking to monetize value from their businesses as well as reduce their operating obligations. We look to partner with existing management teams, not replace them.
In Canada, medium to large companies have access to many forms of capital including bank financing, private equity, and the public markets. Smaller companies however, have limited options beyond simple bank financing. In particular, access to private equity capital is significantly limited for companies that find themselves within the smaller end of the Canadian mid-market ($1mm to $10mm in cash flow). Ashbridge Partners was formed in January 2013 with the goal of focusing on this market opportunity.
