More Than Just an Acquirer, a Partner in Success
We don’t collect businesses. We nurture and help them grow. We prefer to treat our acquisitions like people, not property. That’s why we do our best to ensure their growth and development.
Constellation Software Inc.
Our buy-and-hold philosophy means we are a permanent partner in the attainment of your company’s full potential.
An ecosystem of best-in-class companies paired with a culture of sharing best practices means leaders can continuously improve their business unit.
We are not private equity. Employees and customers will never go through another sale process — ensuring a long-term orientation and preserving the unique brand and culture.
Empowering business leaders and employees through a decentralized and autonomous operating structure — allowing companies to preserve its original mission and identity.
Niche software is all we do. Companies can avoid unpredictable and significant challenges that exists with other acquirers that are not a technology-first organization.
“Perseus Group is a great fit for our business because it has experience working with a vast amount of software companies like ours. We now have the ability to compare our processes and best practices to theirs and make adjustments based on our discoveries.”
“I turned 50 the same month that we were acquired by Perseus Group, so it was a phenomenal birthday present. They came in and said, ‘We’d like you to run this business and figure out how to grow it — we’re not going to tell you how to operate it.’ I knew right away that we were in good hands.”
