“I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside INK to launch three brands… having a partner like that is invaluable!”

Launching a new private equity firm in a crowded marketplace is hard enough. Doing so with a targeted focus would make that job even tougher. Pier 70’s focus was on companies led by diverse teams of executives. While the data showed that this segment outperformed their homogenized peers, there was some hesitation surrounding their model, but the numbers don’t lie:
“Fortune 1000 companies in the top quartile of ethnic diversity among their senior management outperformed their peers in EBITDA margin by 35%.”
