What We Do
Curzon Ventures provides owner-managers a truly unique exit opportunity. The cornerstone of our strategy is to take an active "hands-on" management role in the business we acquire. Unlike private equity firms or trade buyers, we work with owners to craft a custom deal to achieve their transition goals as we continue growing the business. Our aim is to ensure continuity for customers, employees and the community. We take a long-term perspective to management and seek to build on the legacy of the founder.
