Why We Are Different
We have worked with and within some of the finest middle market businesses and investment firms across the country. As operators, we have each run businesses and understand the unique challenges that companies face in quickly-evolving business environments. As investors, we understand the financial expectations, execution strategies, and key deal points on both sides of the table.
Our focus on a limited number of portfolio companies and our varied experience investing in, consulting with, and directly operating companies gives us a unique focus and perspective on maximizing an ever-changing set of business opportunities in our partnerships.
What will never change, however, is our unyielding commitment to the interests of our partners.
What Calidant Signifies
To craft a unique moniker, we defined the attributes that we wanted our firm to stand for, and the concepts that rose to the top were being of high "caliber," optimizing the "cadence" of our work and service, and always pressing forward in a "valiant" manner. The name "Calidant" was born from a literal combination of these tenants.
