Since 1982, Saugatuck has partnered with entrepreneurs to build exceptional businesses within a wide variety of industries.
Leveraging our principals’ operating and investment experience coupled with our network of seasoned executives and financial institutions, we commit not just our financial resources but also our human resources to each individual investment.
Saugatuck works closely with each management team in structuring a transaction that makes sense for both sides. An important component of each investment is to provide appropriate opportunities for a management team to share in the success of each investment, typically through a significant equity participation program. We then continue to work closely with each management team by bringing our full resources to bear for strategic and financial planning and implementation.
