+ SilkRoad Equity's investment philosophy centers around a core set of principles focused on partnering with management to execute strategies for long term value creation. We do not acquire businesses with a predefined exit strategy or investment time horizon – we are happy to own and operate businesses for the long term.
+ Our investments are primarily centered around growth – growth achieved through acquisition, organic growth and/or through our universe of resources and relationships. Our introductions to potential customers, buyers, distributors, partners and directors help build critical relationships and strategic alliances. We provide the ability and resources to add value operationally and strategically, with a high degree of technology acumen and substantial transaction structuring experience.
+ We invest in a wide range of opportunities – from start-ups to buy-outs, build-ups, spin-offs, privatizations and industry consolidations, focusing on those with high growth potential and strong management teams. Over the past 20 years, we have invested in and acquired over 200 companies worldwide, comprising over $5 billion of transaction value.
+ We primarily pursue opportunities in the areas of: technology, gaming, media & entertainment, healthcare, energy and real estate.
