RCG Team

Welcome back to our CVCA Central series, where we spotlight our members, offering insights into the organizations that play a critical role in our community. This time, we’re featuring Regenerative Capital Group.

What is Regenerative Capital Group’s focus?

Regenerative Capital Group’s investment and impact thesis is centered on seizing the opportunity presented by the convergence of the silver tsunami’ decade of SME ownership succession in Canada, the emerging interest in Search Fund’ investments, and investors seeking alternative investment vehicles that can provide market-rate returns and transformative impact.

We focus on regenerative value creation for profit, people, and place by utilizing an innovative private equity-styled investment vehicle that invests in proven operator-entrepreneurs, proven businesses, and our proven experience in scaling SMEs across Canada.
