Partnering With Private Equity – What You Need to Know
December 29, 2020
Have you asked yourself recently, “how do I choose the right buyer for my company”? If so, this episode is for you. 7 Mile’s Partner, Tripp Davis, leads a panel of private equity professionals to discuss the different aspects to consider when bringing on outside capital.
Jeff Vogel, Partner at Court Square Capital Partners; Jared Ruger, Partner at Bertram Capital; and Iveshu Bhatia, Managing Director of Private Equity at Audax Group, can all agree on one important piece of advice: your partner matters more than the cost of capital, so be honest with them.
“Things that allow you to communicate well will fundamentally come from having command of your business and being honest about where you’re good, where you’re bad and what you need help with,” Iveshu says. “There’s a partner for everyone that’s out there. … As long as you communicate clearly and honestly, you will be able to find the right partner for you.”
