Seneca Partners

We are a leading Independent Sponsor
in North America

Seneca Partners is an active independent sponsor that focuses on lower-middle market companies in manufacturing, business services, healthcare services, tech services, B to C and specialty finance. Seneca is located in Southeast Michigan and invests in profitable businesses with EBITDA of $2 million to $20 million+ based in the U.S. and Canada.



At the core of Seneca’s philosophical approach is partnership.

Seneca takes a highly collaborative approach to its investment strategy and has partnered with a variety of investors and types of capital partners, including family offices, private equity funds, SBICs, asset managers, independent sponsors and others. Seneca believes that sharing expertise, networks, knowledge and resources gives us significantly better odds of achieving a desired outcome on any particular investment.

Proprietary Deals

Seneca places a major emphasis on identifying investment opportunities that are either proprietary in nature or sourced through limited processes.

Seneca’s core investment thesis takes a value-driven approach that is frequently difficult to accomplish when participating in widespread-auction processes. All of Seneca’s current portfolio companies were sourced proprietarily by Seneca or through limited investment banker or broker processes, or brought to Seneca by its large network of independent sponsors.

Independent Sponsor Collaboration

Seneca has a unique model of frequently partnering with other independent sponsors on transactions they originate.

Seneca’s deep team of 6 private equity professionals and its large, curated capital partner network and private equity experience offer other independent sponsors significantly better odds at closing transactions and overall successful outcomes. This has resulted in 7 of Seneca’s 11 current portfolio companies being sourced by and closed alongside another independent sponsor.
