About Pender West
Pender West is a family-backed private equity firm that invests in small to medium sized businesses. We are a financial investor with a partnership approach to building constructive and supportive relationships with owners and management teams.
Since 2000, we have been partnering with entrepreneurs and management teams to build our portfolio companies over the long term. Unlike many private equity firms, we do not have a set investment hold period and are committed to creating value over a longer term investment horizon - upwards of 5 to 15 plus years.
With an office in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Toronto, Ontario we look for investments in companies located across Canada and Western United States.
