Traverse Pointe Partners was founded on the philosophy of partnership.

Many of our investors and operating partners are entrepreneurs and executives who understand the challenges of building and growing a business. While each of our principals and partners offer expertise and success in their own arena, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We endeavor to partner with successful, talented management teams and to help provide operational, financial and strategic support.


Our Investment Criteria

Traverse Pointe Partners makes control investments in lower middle-market companies headquartered in North America.

We believe in a culture of partnership and collaboration. To that end, we are disciplined and focus exclusively on opportunities where we can live up to our end of the partnership; enhancing value and helping businesses maximize their potential. Our team has a unique breadth of experience across a number of industry verticals allowing us to look at an array of sectors. From a financial perspective, we focus on fundamentally sound opportunities in the lower middle market (which we define as up to $6 million of EBITDA).


We partner with strong management teams, providing capital and a level of operational, financial and strategic support to enable organizations in transition to maximize their potential.

To date, Traverse Pointe has completed three acquisitions, Integrated Health Systems, Redi-Bag, Inc. and JDS Marketing & Sales.


Our principals, operating partners, and advisory board members bring an extensive and unique array of skill sets to our investment partnerships.
