Intrepid Capital Partners (“ICP”) is an investment platform that forms part of the Vandrevala family office. This platform is exclusively focused on private, unlisted growth equity investments.
Founded by Cyrus Vandrevala and Pete Musser in 2001, ICP has achieved above-market returns by investing in middle-market companies. ICP strives to create value by investing in great businesses where our strategic insight, global relationships and operational support can drive operational excellence and realize the investee company’s potential. We are patient investors, committed to achieving the best long-term outcomes for the businesses we invest in.
We seek to leverage our intellectual capital and our extensive global network in partnership with existing owners and management to achieve strategic and operational excellence. Our unique ability to assist management teams in building integrated, efficient businesses with a global footprint and a low-cost platform differentiates us from other private investment firms.
Our 15-year track record is testimony to our ability to adapt quickly to changing market environments and capitalize on market dislocations through both traditional and unconventional investment approaches. Our founders' achievements over the years with companies such as QVC, Comcast, Novell, Zenta Group and Sanchez Group is a testament to this. We have successfully exited several investments through merging them with market leaders, IPOs or strategic sales to private-equity funds.
We follow a thematic approach to investing and focus on industries, geographies and sectors in which we maintain extensive expertise. Currently, such sectors include:
We are comfortable with acquiring companies or investing in platforms that require operational improvement, cost realignment, brand revitalizations and patience. We are also flexible about deploying our capital in the creation of new companies, which allows us to collaborate with experienced management teams and leverage our deep industry and operational expertise to capitalize on market opportunities that we have identified.
We are currently focused on opportunities in the United States, the United Kingdom, India and Russia, but have the flexibility to invest globally.
