About Our Firm
ValueStreet Equity Partners is a San Diego based private equity firm acquiring controlling interests in closely held corporations. The firm targets service-based businesses, light/niche industrial manufacturers, and value-added distribution companies generating between $500K – $3M in EBITDA. The firm engages in leveraged buyouts, management buyouts, growth equity investments, and other forms of recapitalizations to provide owners with liquidity options as they look to exit their business. The fund is family funded and evergreen – we do not buy and flip companies. ValueStreet holds its investments and fosters growth over the long term. The intern will work closely with ValueStreet leadership to source new investment opportunities by directly contacting business owners and helping to build banking and other intermediary relationships on behalf of the firm. Additionally, the intern will perform ad-hoc industry/financial analysis and be involved in leadership team discussions/meetings as it relates to firm strategy and forming investment theses.
