Headwater Equity Partners

Headwater Equity Partners is a private equity fund that is focused on making private investments in Western Canadian companies. The Fund was established to address the succession challenges faced by many companies in the lower mid-market.

We specialize in assisting companies manage ownership change and succession through well-aligned management buyouts or acquisitions. Headwater also provides growth capital to businesses that have the opportunity to grow organically or through acquisition. We look for management teams that have a strong vision for their business and are seeking value-added investors to help them achieve it.

We invest based on fundamentals and are long-term investors committed to helping management teams achieve success. Headwater collaborates with management to help build strategically significant, sustainable businesses.

Our Philosophy

We believe in having management operate the business and supporting them by adding value in our areas of expertise or through our senior relationships. We work collaboratively with management to help improve their business and its value. Management teams typically involve us in strategy, operations, acquisitions, bank negotiations, building a value-add Board of Directors, going public and expansion into the US or international markets.
