ABOUT OUR APPROACH
While a CEO or owner of a profitable business may not have a critical need for capital, the addition of a value-added equity partner may become attractive at some point in the company’s life-cycle. If you are seeking capital, refer to our investment criteria
Silver Canyon’s non-control investing strategy aligns our interests with management teams and other owners. We work closely and collaboratively with our management teams to enhance the long-term value of our portfolio companies. We build relationships with management teams over time and place a high value on the ‘right chemistry’. We have over 20 years of experience helping middle market companies build their businesses and realize their growth objectives. We strive to serve our companies as a trusted adviser and an experienced resource, providing strategic, operational, and financial services from both our in-house team and through our network.
Provide Non-Control Equity Financing
We offer equity capital that allows owners and managers to retain control, and at the same time, finance strategic growth initiatives. Using Silver Canyon equity growth capital allows companies to continue to invest free cash flow into the business as opposed to making debt service payments and maintains operational flexibility.
Alignment of Interests
Silver Canyon succeeds when you succeed because our interests and incentives are aligned with the shareholders. We earn our returns from building a stronger business and increasing equity value rather than from financial engineering, or restructuring. We do not use debt to enhance our returns, which puts your and our equity at risk – you are in charge of how much debt the business has.
Flexible Transaction Approach
We customize our investment structure to meet the immediate and longer-term objectives of a business’s owners and management team.
Silver Canyon has a 5-7 year investment horizon and is focused on creating long-term value by providing capital and strategic insight to help management teams build their businesses and create sustainable value.
Experienced Investment Team

Capital and Expertise Maximizing Value
