Why Blue Sage

We know businesses require more than just capital to succeed. We formed Blue Sage Capital to invest alongside management in proven, growing, small middle-market companies.

Trust

We partner with managers whom we like, trust and admire and whose interests align with our own. Through our investments, we enable current company owners to meet their needs for capital, liquidity and diversification.

Partnership

We believe that private equity is a relationship business, not a transactional one. We strive to treat everyone, including our managers, intermediaries and service providers, like partners.

Value-Add

We know that earnings growth is the most important factor in a successful investment. We provide our partner companies with the capital, guidance, strategy, and operational support needed to create additional value.

Character

Acting with integrity is the fundamental principle guiding all of our actions.

Reputation & Track Record

Prior to founding Blue Sage, our partners established a superior track record. Since 2003, we have continued to generate top-decile returns to our investors.
