Partner Ventures is a ‘direct secondary’ investor, providing liquidity for owners of preferred and common stock in companies that no longer fit their investment strategy. These companies may be venture backed or identified through a search fund.
In venture backed companies, we focus on acquiring material positions in individual, later stage, emerging growth companies. We are the ideal partner for general partners who have the ability to recycle cash in their fund, and have decided to rationalize their portfolio by selling one or two larger positions to concentrate on the others. We also provide liquidity for common stockholders with large positions in current or former affiliated companies seeking partial or full liquidity.
Unlike larger direct secondary funds that concentrate on purchasing portfolios of assets at the lowest possible price, we are interested in purchasing single positions that will provide partial portfolio liquidity to general partners desiring to continue investing in other of their portfolio companies, distributing cash to limited partners, or covering fund expenses.
As a search fund investor, we offer entrepreneurs capital, connections, and our experience as a former searcher and CEO. We co-invest with many of the largest and best known individual and institutional search fund investors behind select search fund entrepreneurs.
We offer sellers an intelligent, discreet, decisive and fair alternative in monetizing select assets. Because we do not have the higher overhead of larger funds, our management fees are lower and we can compete more aggressively on offering price in any given transaction.
We are a Value Added Partner in all of our transactions, and have a reputation of working collaboratively with company management and their boards to reach long-term strategic and financial goals.
