Providing Succession Leadership
Brackenwell is an appealing choice to business owners who want to retire or gradually transition away from their day-to-day responsibilities. Our investment strategy is long-term, with a focus on small to medium-sized operations.
We are offering knowable leadership for the future of your business. We want to take care of it as you have, with renewed energy.
What we WON'T do is financially engineer the assets of your business down to nothing, as large private equity firms might do. For an example of what we are NOT, please see this article in The Atlantic about retailers raided by Wall Street investors.
Brackenwell investors are "Main Street" entrepreneurs who support the small businesses that are the backbone of our economy and civil society. Learn more about search funds from Entrepreneur and the Daily Herald of suburban Chicago.
