management & entrepreneurial leadership
DIAMOND IS DIFFERENT
Diamond Equity Partners' strength comes from strong operational expertise, a deep understanding of many industries, and key market relationships within each sector.
We invest in high-quality growth companies with strong management teams that have successfully transitioned from startups to revenue-generating growth companies with clear paths to profitability, and defensible market positions.
Over 40 years of entrepreneurial experience building businesses as founder/operator/CEO, combined with deep industry relationships, provide competitive advantages for our portfolio companies, further accelerate proven operating models, and supercharge growth.
After a business plan is developed and refined it’s all about excellence in execution of the plan. Diamond has created market leaders for almost half a century; we know what it takes to build a world-class enterprise.
From the start, Diamond works to prepare the company for exit. Whether it's a sale or merger with an industry leader or one from another domain, Diamond helps facilitate the process and maximize value.
We at Diamond Equity Partners know well the importance of flexibility in our focus. We also understand the great power that comes with adaptability as we move forward. We adroitly apply these concepts to the constantly changing business world today. We expect uncertainty and volatility; they are opportunities for growth, allowing well-prepared, strong management teams to pivot and adjust to achieve greater success.
WEATHERING THE STORM
STRATEGIC, OPERATIONAL &
Diamond draws from a committed pool of capital. We are able to combine the financial and operational resources of a traditional family office with the relentlessness of an institutionally backed investment firm, aggressively pursuing opportunities for growth. Additionally, our structure affords us the flexibility to "look outside the box" and support business beyond the scope of a traditional fund. Ultimately we look to add value wherever possible - our investment thesis is not limited by particular size, asset class or sector.
Our flat organizational structure and straightforward, non-bureaucratic approach provide for expeditious decision making and quick execution from start to finish. We have the ability and savvy to provide capital and expertise to support unique opportunities.
Diamond has the strategic, operational and financial resources to deliver the required results. Further, our relationships with entrepreneurs and leaders around the globe empower our team to work diligently, quickly, and synergistically with others.
