True North principals have a demonstrable history of identifying companies which possess attractive growth potential, and of conducting rigorous strategic, operational, and financial analysis to support sound investment judgment. We invest in companies that are at an inflection point, where new ownership, the introduction of capital, value oriented stewardship, and sophisticated management practices can enable a business to reach its full potential. True North works in partnership with management to transform small businesses into world-class organizations.
