PARTNER COLLECTIVE IS AN INVESTMENT VEHICLE FOCUSED ON UK SME’s, BUILT BY AN EXPERIENCED TEAM OF SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEURS INVESTING IN ENTREPRENEURS.
Our mission is to be the most aligned investors to our business partners, partners are typically at £3m to £15m existing revenue stage, UK located, and looking for capital to expand their business. Our focus is on ‘Buy & Build’ strategies, thereby supporting partner companies to grow both organically and through acquisitions typically in the IT support, asset financing & property sectors. Our financial commitment enables partner companies to accelerate organic growth and increase capacity by helping partners research; improve and source high-quality, strategic M&A opportunities that will complement their existing business.
At Partner Collective we have started many of our own companies, we are entrepreneurs.
We love building stuff. We aren’t investors who sit in an ivory tower analysing spreadsheets. We’ve lived through start-ups and owning businesses, so we have huge respect and empathy for our partners we invested with. Most private equity is not structured in a way that is well aligned to partners.
We invest in your company because we think you’re building something important. We’re conviction driven and avoid protracted decision-making and unnecessary diligence. We have the same incentives as our partners to increase the value of the company. Collective Support, running a company can be tough and lonely. We’ve been there. That’s why we go to such great lengths to make sure partners and CEOs in our portfolio can interact and learn from each other. With many exceptional partners over the years, the thing we love the most is our partner community, and a willingness of our partners to help each other. Think of it as having the collective support of some of the best partners. In essence, we’re trying hard to create at Partner Collective an investment partnership we wished existed when we each built our first business.
