Investment Criteria
We are passionate about unleashing the potential of a select number of entrepreneurial management teams with a solid track record of growth in their niche business, but who dream of building much more substantial legacies of success in a global economy.

As a result, the core focus of Joshua Partners is to mentor and partner with management teams in cutting-edge value creation techniques, provide the necessary financial expertise, and then encourage aggressive, yet achievable growth targets.

Recognizing that growth can be most profitable either organically or via acquisition, a key component of coaching will be in mergers and acquisitions. In this way Joshua Partners, its portfolio companies, and all its stakeholders become true partners in success.

We generally look for profitable companies with strong management, a defensible and highly differentiated niche business model, and yearly cash earnings of $2 - $20 million. We will also look at compelling opportunities that are outside these parameters on a case-by-case basis: smaller companies that make compelling additions to our existing companies and larger enterprises that make compelling platform companies for long-term growth.

Together with management and motivated employees, we seek to build world-class franchises collaboratively that are leaders in their respective industries, while giving management the freedom they need to run the business on a day-to-day basis.
