We buy, hold, and grow purpose-driven businesses.

While plenty of investment and private equity firms preach "Purpose," we actually practice it. Really. Our founder has written books on it. It's literally in our name, and it is the foundation of what we believe: that business should be a force for good in the world. 

 

So what makes us different? We acquire and reinvigorate small businesses, creating more inspired and engaged employees through our Purpose Playbook™ methodology.

 

And unlike typical private equity, we aim to hold our companies forever. We're not interested in short-term decisions to maximize gain at the cost of employees, customers, and suppliers. We strive to keep the culture created by the original founders intact.

 

Not only does our proven, Purpose-driven approach make the world a better place, it also drives higher-than-industry returns for investors. You might say it's a win-win-win.

Our secret sauce: The Purpose Playbook™

Once we acquire a business, we apply our Purpose Playbook™ in order to create purpose-driven, growth-minded teams. Below is high-level breakdown of the process.

Mentoring

Through our mentorship and training plan, we will work with the seller, the new CEO, and leadership team to establish focus and trust, and prepare them for the work ahead. CEO mentorship will be ongoing and is a critical component of our process.

PVTV™️

Working with the team, we will implement our PVTV™️ (Purpose, Vision, Tenets, & Values) formula to instill within the team a sense of “why” and integrity that everyone can believe in.

The Great Game

Once PVTV™️ is established, we’ll then work to implement The Great Game of Business into the organization, creating an open-book management incentive program in which all team members participate.

Empower

Ultimately, it is our goal to empower the leaders and the team to be self-sustaining, leveraging the tools we’ve implemented and using our team at Purpose Group to help spot growth opportunities and overcome future challenges.

OUR CEO WROTE THE BOOK ON PURPOSE-DRIVEN LEADERSHIP

Taking the experiences he's had founding, growing, and selling businesses over the last 25 years, our CEO, Jeff Hilimire, has written the best-selling series: The Turnaround Leadership Series. These books lay out the foundational approach Purpose Group takes with the businesses in our portfolio. With each of our companies, we will imbue a sense of Purpose within the team and provide a roadmap for them to work together to achieve industry-leading success.

SELLING YOUR BUSINESS?

We love talking to business owners about the amazing companies they've built. Below is the main criteria we look for when considering an acquisition:

  • Enduringly profitable
  • Minimum $1M EBITDA
  • Over ten years in business
  • Industry Agnostic (though we prefer business-to-business companies)
  • Within a 6-8 hour drive from Atlanta

If your business meets this criterion, please contact us at contact@purposegroup.us.

Have a friend that might want to sell their business?

If you know someone who is interested in selling their business - and that business meets the above criteria - then we'd love to know!

And here's the kicker, we'll give you $50,000 if we end up buying any business you refer to us. Drop us a note at contact@purposegroup.us.
