What we do

For over 20 years, our principals have been involved with small and middle-market businesses, having done everything from startup to restart to turnaround to successful sale of companies across a broad range of industries.

We’ve done consulting engagements that include interim executive engagements, valuations, and M&A advisory, and technology advisory and implementation for Financial, Agri-business, Aviation, Energy, Medical, Manufacturing, Contracting, and many others that don’t immediately spring to mind.

Our current interest is in finding small and mid-market companies where we can take an ownership role…either minority, or control, where we can play an active role in strategic planning, finance and operations with companies, and more importantly, with people where our interests and goals are aligned.

Our principals have started, built, grown, and sold businesses of their own, in several industries, and have experience in business, project and program development in the context of multinational companies.  Our backgrounds are in real entrepreneurial and operational business ventures, not as Consultants or Service Providers, but as people who have taken the risks, and built the businesses.  We’ve had some successes, and we’ve been through some difficult times as well.  There’s not much in the range of human experience in small and middle-market business that we haven’t experienced.

What Our Customers Think

Scott and the Streamside Ventures and Streamside Partners team were terrific to work with.  As an interim COO, Scott brought in his team and helped us to get our company turned around, returned to profitability, and improved our operations from the field to the office.  He improved relations with vendors, financial partners, and customers, and was influential in leading improvements in employee morale.  Later, when Streamside Partners made an investment in our Company, Scott stepped into the role of CEO.  Ultimately we sold to a public company.  Scott worked tirelessly through the audit and negotiations, and his expertise was invaluable.  He went way above the call of duty.  I can’t thank him and his team enough.
