Sterling Partners Company Information
- United States
Sterling Partners is a private equity firm founded by entrepreneurs. Since 1983, Sterling has partnered with superior management teams, injecting our experience and Business Value Accelerator (BVA) methodology to help entrepreneurs and business owners stimulate and sustain significant growth. Its strategy is to invest in companies with strong business fundamentals and collaborate closely with management to deliver the right tools and additional resources necessary to excel in today's challenging business environment. Rather than operate the companies in which it invests, Sterling prefers to serve as a resource for management as it navigates for accelerated growth. Sterling's team of operating and investing professionals have extensive backgrounds in sales, marketing, strategy, operations, finance, legal, and human resources. From these cumulative experiences, Sterling has developed a proprietary methodology that sets The Growth Standard, our BVA. BVA places a strong emphasis on developing and coaching our management teams while providing our portfolio companies with effective, best practices that enhance their existing core strengths. Sterling invests in industries with positive, long-term trends and leverages its experience, expertise, and network to drive value to its portfolio companies. Sterling's industry focus includes: education, healthcare, business services, direct marketing, specialty manufacturing and distribution, and technology. With nearly $4 billion of capital under management, Sterling invests from $5 million to over $100 million of equity in each company with which it partners. Sterling's funds are divided among two investment groups: Sterling Capital Partners, which invests in small and middle-market buyout transactions, and Sterling Venture Partners, which provides growth capital for expansion stage companies in which it assumes a non-controlling interest.
