Candescent Partners invests in the buyout, recapitalization and growth of dynamic lower middle market companies in fragmented industries.
Our approach is to identify well-managed, founder-led companies in fragmented sectors of healthcare, business services and software. After partnering with an initial platform company through acquisition or recapitalization, Candescent Partners will agressively pursue growth through additional complimentary acquisitions as well as new organic growth strategies.
Our goal is to establish a professionally-managed enterprise that can take advantage of acquisition and organic growth opportunities through our experience in developing entrepreneurial businesses in the lower middle market.
