Strategy & Criteria

Strategy & Criteria

Our clearly defined and deliberate strategy is simple. We invest in businesses that align with our vision and our values; businesses where we know we can add value for mutual success. The Petwin acquisition and management team bring over 50 years of combined experience sourcing and executing transactions, as well as fostering robust and influential business development networks and driving growth across a spectrum of industries and markets. The foundation of our strategy is relationships: relationships with industry players, relationships with key advisors, relationships with business owners and investors, relationships and partnerships that endure. We invest in businesses across Canada and the US that we believe in to nurture entrepreneurial collaboration, identify opportunities, facilitate growth, execute vision, and create value for all stakeholders. This is the Petwin Private Equity Strategy.
