Rose Equity Partners possesses a deep understanding of the challenges businesses of this size face, having been in this position ourselves and helped many successful start-ups overcome these challenges. Crucially, we also know the exact steps that are needed to build a repeatable sales process and scale revenue from ~£500k to £6M+.

We will work alongside the existing management team as growth partners to develop effective and actionable playbooks, implement effective growth strategies and help the founders achieve measurable milestones to significantly increase future shareholder value.

As active members of the M&A community, we understand the intricacies that come with preparing for a successful exit or positioning the business for growth funding.

This may include:

  Fine-tuning your sales operations.

The final acquisition can be made by our network of SME investors, a third party with industry experience, or directly to Rose Equity Partners.
