Meritas Capital Partners is a growth-oriented private equity firm seeking investments in profitable, operationally sound, and founder or management-owned companies. Beyond these attributes, we are focused on businesses with opportunities to improve operations and drive growth through the use of innovative technologies. Meritas primarily invests in change of control transactions with retained management talent.

Meritas was founded by Rob Burkholder and Don Epstein after nearly 20 years operating, growing, and finally exiting the leading managed IT services business in Denver. Having completed nine acquisition transactions together, Rob and Don bring a unique blend of operations, technology, financial, and M&A expertise to businesses looking for a partner in growth. Read more about our investment strategy.

Selling all or part of a business, besides the obvious benefit of liquidity, can energize the company and drive growth beyond expectations.
