Backer North Investments is a private equity independent sponsor and control buyout investor focused on the North American mid-market, with a preference for Canadian companies. We partner with talented management teams of ambitious businesses that require capital and expertise to unlock their potential to become North American or global leaders. We're based in Toronto, Canada, but our team members work remotely from locations across the U.S. and Canada.

Active investors in mid-market businesses

As seasoned business leaders with decades of operating experience, we have built an extensive network of capital providers and operating partners across various sectors and industries. This network allows us to seek out and acquire a controlling interest in mid-market businesses.

Strong capital partner network of active investors

Our strong capital partner network comprises select and hand-picked top-notch private equity funds, family offices, and high net-worth individuals throughout North America. They are active mid-market investors with committed investment capital. We pool our partner’s capital to finance buyouts deal-by-deal.

Founder-led or family-owned private companies

Our preferred acquisitions are founder-led or family-owned private companies poised to benefit from our operating and finance know-how. We work with management to execute bespoke value-creation programs and grow the businesses we invest in. Our key team members have significant strategic, operational, and financial experience to support the management in developing the businesses.

Fair, trusted, and flexible

We are fair, trusted, and flexible partners. Our hands-on approach, operating capabilities, and team's hard-working and friendly demeanour differentiate us from our peers.
