We're a private equity firm with a slightly different approach. True to our Midwest roots, we've built Bird Dog Equity Partners — and our careers — on the foundation that people come first.
When evaluating investment opportunities, we look at margins, scalability and favorable long-term demographics, but only after determining that the people involved have expertise, integrity, a strong work ethic and the same balanced life that we strive to lead. Long-term results (the only real kind in our world) require doing good deals with good people, the kind who find a way to win.
More than anything, it has been prioritizing people — both those looking for capital and those looking to grow their capital — that has brought us to where we are today. Like a good bird dog, we look for loyal partnerships instead of running from one person to the next. If this sounds like you, we encourage you to get in touch with us. We don’t bite.
