Search Fund Investing. Canada.

Sage is the first institutional fund focused on Search Fund investing in Canada. Formed in 2019, Sage supports both traditional Searchers and non-traditional Searchers / Entrepreneurs in their quest to acquire and grow companies in the lower mid‑market.

We believe companies in the midst of succession planning in the lower mid-market provide great acquisition opportunities.

Investing in the next generation of Canadian entrepreneurs to acquire, manage and grow SME's while making out sized risk adjusted returns.
