Description

Founded in 2001, Castanea Partners is a $500 million fund investing $20M to $75M in dynamic consumer brands and marketing services. They focus on sectors where they have leadership and expertise. They also invest in select business-to-business information providers.

Mission

Castanea began as a family investment office and a significant portion of our capital still comes from the partners and employees. Investing our own capital allows us to be patient when appropriate and aligns us with our management partners and investors. We are not deal junkies or financial engineers, and use debt conservatively in our investments. We’re brand enthusiasts who love working with our partners, finding solutions to tough challenges and building great, enduring businesses.
