Conversion Venture Capital (CVC) is focused on control and growth investments in quality mid-market businesses which would benefit from a long term investment perspective.
We invest our own capital and, unlike traditional private equity firms, we do not operate as a fund. As a result, we have greater flexibility with regards to structuring and investment time horizons.
We have expertise investing in multiple industries and subsectors across a variety of business cycles and through various economic conditions.
We strive to be active and value add board members leveraging our experience, ability to assess add-on acquisitions, and network of relationships to build value over time.
We rely on the quality of existing management teams to operate our businesses and endeavor to make the senior executives of each portfolio company our partners in success.
