Eleven lessons learned, from 25-year-old Riverside Co

Buyouts - August 11 2014

The Riverside Company has enjoyed a lot of success since our founding in 1988 by finding great little companies and making them bigger and better. We’ve sold more than 100 companies in our history, and collectively we grew them more than 2.5x in size during our ownership. We adore smaller companies because there are more ways to improve them, making the upside much greater. It’s been a good run and we’re working harder than ever to keep it going for another 25 years in our-fast changing, hyper-competitive world.
