INVESTOR BASE

We are backed by renowned national and international investors. In a similar vein to Warren Buffett, we think of them as owner-partners who entrusted their capital to us for the long-term.

Furthermore, their experience in more than 150 transactions of this nature and their capital capacity provide us with confidence and agility to close a transaction

With a long-standing friendship, from our college days at ITAM to our MBA days at the University of Chicago, we have a solid understanding of our partnership

SOCIAL IMPACT

A business without a higher purpose other than financial returns would be no different than climbing a great hill for the sake of it. We strive to change our country with more and better jobs, with a culture that puts people at the center of decision-making. Our commitment to business owners will be respecting and taking care of their people and culture

PRINCIPLES

Inspired by Ray Dalio’s analysis of life and work principles, we understand our principles as a set of guidelines to “deal with situations that occur over and over”. Our core principles are: self-growth, loyalty and resiliency.

For us, principles are priceless commodities.
