PARTNERS OF LOWER MIDDLE MARKET COMPANIES IN THE NORTHWEST

ABOUT WESTWARD PARTNERS

For nearly 15 years, we have been investing in privately held businesses located throughout the Northwest. At Westward, we partner with businesses with revenues between $20 and $500 million and experienced management teams to build long-term value for our investors, our portfolio company employees, and the executives we work with.

We were founded by two entrepreneurs who have experienced many of the same challenges — and opportunities — that our partner companies face. We believe this combination of aligned interests and shared experiences is what enables us to create a strong foundation for future success.
 
We do not measure our success solely by the volume of capital we manage, but rather by the returns we achieve. Our goal is to create durable partnerships with companies in high cost of entry industries that are characterized by sustainable cash flow, opportunities for significant growth, and attractive end-market dynamics. Westward works with existing management to grow our portfolio companies, with a view to creating long-term value for all parties.
