Building Strategy on
We focus on partnerships to help businesses reach their full potential. Since 2004, we’ve helped founder-led businesses scale for successful futures by creating collaborative strategies that harness and optimize rapid growth.
We foster spirited partnerships and provide unique perspective—seeking wins for everyone through insightful discussions.
Above all, we believe in our team, and in the business owners with whom we partner. We hold the owners’ work, expertise and opinions in high regard.
Not only are we committed to our owner-operators and investors, we are committed to the employees and the common goals of each and every partnership we form.
At Hastings, we prioritize partnership over purchase. That means seeking opportunities, but also creating strong relationships in order to identify businesses that can turn financial backing into sustained growth. Our investment model is designed to not only find, but also to create, these partnerships geared towards joint success.
