Buy Side


Growth through acquisition can be an excellent strategy but can divert significant resources away from regular business operations. Running a business is a full-time job and so is developing acquisition candidates. We can help.    

We are experts at buy side advisory. This expertise doesn’t just come from transaction experience but from building businesses and legacies. We offer our clients the experience and insight that can only come from investing in and running companies and serving on boards.  We work with our clients to determine their acquisition goals, whether they want to grow to prepare for a sale, strategically expand their business or invest available capital.  

From one acquisition to ongoing mandates, we love helping businesses grow. Our research-driven process and vast network allows us to source strategic targets across the globe.  

Our proactive approach starts with setting strategic priorities and research. Starting with your company. We work with you to help you sell your organization before you buy theirs. Our senior-level team directly engages with businesses, many of which have not thought about selling prior to our call, letting opportunity, not an auction, drive the process. We build a pipeline of strong relationships with potential sellers to increase the likelihood of a successful transaction, speaking from business owner to business owner, not junior analyst to senior executive. We continuously expand the pipeline of potential opportunities and run parallel processes on multiple deals.  

Finally, we leverage our experience as investors and operators to position the opportunity and realize value for both the buyer and seller.  

At Cascade Partners, strategy drives the deal. We do not allow the deal to drive the strategy.
