Vanderslice Capital Partners (VCP) is a private equity firm providing private equity financing for middle market companies in the North West.
We are dedicated to serving the owners, shareholders, and managers of private companies with access to private capital (debt or equity) and the management expertise to apply it successfully in pursuing business success.
Our goal is to create increased operational value that translates into outstanding returns for the business owners of our partner companies and for our investors.
As we look ahead to 2010 and beyond the challenges for business owners have never been greater. Among these - a recessionary economy, global competition, pricing pressure, rising costs, and cash flow disruptions - we believe that a new problem threatens to overtake all others.
That is, we believe that the contraction of capital available to middle market companies is the single greatest obstacle faced by many business owners today.
VCP provides "smart money" equity financing (our investors are themselves successful business operators that have exited their companies by sale) and "helpful money" in that VCP principals have many years of experience in helping to guide business owners in creating valuable companies.
The VCP difference is in providing an organized means to match "smart and helpful" capital with qualifying middle market companies that are smaller and often below the reach of other private equity firms.
