Calling all go-getters and creative thinkers.

At Peterson Partners, we understand the challenges and pressures startup entrepreneurs face, and we offer seed funding options to ease the struggles that accompany rapid growth.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

Our calling is to help business builders succeed.

There is nothing more exciting than helping incredible people build enduring enterprises. We participate for a chapter of growth, usually 5-10 years, during which we serve as a trusted advisor in building brands, systems, and human capital.

People make all the difference, and who we back is our primary investment criterion. The best part of our work is the lasting relationships we build with incredible entrepreneurs. They inspire us to be great people ourselves – the type you want as your partners for the long term.

At our core, we believe in paying it forward. There is no such thing as a one-off transaction. We put our companies and their management teams first, so we can achieve more together in the long run. And the proof is in the pudding: Most of our investments come to us via referral and word of mouth. We have a hunch no other investment firm can say the same.
