Volonet is different

from most investment firms. Why? Primarily because we seek to build upon your legacy, we are using our own capital to fund both the firm’s operations and a large portion of the equity required for the investment, and we intend to operate in the business full/part time after closing. Unlike a competitor or a traditional buyout firm, we will not “absorb” your operations, slash costs, plug in a temporary manager, and/or flip your company for a quick profit. Instead, we intend to personally lead and grow the team you built.  In other words, we are in it for the long run and seek to be a preferred buyer.

We are focused on acquiring lower middle-market businesses where current owners are actively seeking full or partial liquidity in order to transition out of the day-to-day operations.  We will only consider majority ownership positions, but we can be very flexible in tailoring our investment structure to the distinct needs of your company.
