INVESTMENT APPROACH

At Minerva, we believe that great companies are built by business owners in a relentless pursuit of their passion. We recognize preserving that passion, vision and reputation are fundamental to the success of a company beyond it owner's transition. 

While each opportunity is unique, most business owners we meet fall into one of the three categories listed below. Minerva has the flexibility to tailor capital solutions and holding periods to the specific circumstances of each investment to ensure the company's legacy continues to grow and reach its full potential. 

FOCUS ON "NEED", NOT SIZE

100% or near complete liquidity, while preserving company legacy
