Solomons Fund is a new investment group whose purpose is to buy and grow profitable, privately-held companies in the Pacific Northwest. It endeavors to extend these companies’ legacies by applying principles of stewardship, operational excellence, and long-term vision to produce exponential growth for its acquisitions and strong returns for its investors.
With an unprecedented number of owners reaching retirement age (Baby Boomers were eager entrepreneurs), businesses are going up for sale in record numbers. Buyers, however, are not in equal supply. Solomons Fund is working to bridge this gap.
The average investment firm flips a company within a few years. This creates hesitation in business owners concerned with their legacy. Solomons Fund protects this legacy by retaining talent and committing to maintain a long-term growth perspective.
Traditional capital often wants former owners to move on after they sell, but we see owners as a valuable and vital part of a successful transition.
We’re seeking organizations that are not sought after by traditional capital. These are companies with ownership who value people, community, and commitment, companies built upon a values-based worldview. We are looking to build great companies and foster trusting relationships with employees, vendors, customers, and shareholders.
