Cleveland, OH, April 28, 2020 – Edgewater Capital Partners (“Edgewater“) is pleased to announce its updated website and branding, which highlights and reinforces The Edgewater Difference, its three foundational pillars:

“Deep Sector Expertise – You may know Edgewater for our reputation in chemicals, but we have over twenty years of experience investing in smaller specialty industrials, life science, advanced materials, and specialty chemical businesses;

Midwestern Values – Our culture is what truly sets us apart. We are not traditional private equity; our attitude is different. Midwestern Values means honesty, integrity, and transparency in everything we do; and

Growth Enabling Philosophy – ‘The investment is just the starting point.’ This is more than a slogan, it’s our way of life. The goal of every investment we make is to unlock the potential of each company so it can flourish.”

“These pillars have been key drivers of the firm’s success over the past twenty years,” says Ryan Meany, Edgewater’s Managing Partner. “Memorializing our pillars as ‘The Edgewater Difference’ aims to increase awareness of our storied reputation and unique value-add in an industry with an ever-increasing number of entrants.”

Edgewater believes in supporting management teams and enabling them to focus on the business by investing in people, infrastructure, and technology. Further, the firm’s Operating Partners help drive successful outcomes for the portfolio by leading their respective practice area, bringing decades of technical, operational, and commercial expertise along with a deep network of connections. This unparalleled depth of dedicated experts drives additional investments in the thesis-specific practice areas below, which are subsets within the four main sectors:

Life Science | Materials Outovation® | Specialty Materials Applications | Engineered Components and Systems

Finally, and most importantly, Edgewater’s Vice President of Business Development, Jason Burmer, commented, “We hope everyone is safe and healthy in this difficult time. Regardless of whether you are currently searching for capital or considering strategic alternatives, we would welcome the opportunity to connect with you and be helpful to you in any way we can.”
