City Different Acquisitions

Small Business Acquisitions


Invest in small and medium sized private businesses in the Southwest, providing an opportunity for the right investor to achieve attractive risk-adjusted returns over the long-term while gaining exposure to a unique asset class


City Different Acquisitions is a strategy in which we will raise capital on a deal-by-deal basis, and invest directly into small and medium sized businesses to provide growth equity or a personal liquidity event to an owner-operator. We are looking for business owners who will continue to maintain an equity stake and manage day-to-day operations post transaction. We are different from a traditional private equity fund in that we plan to establish long-term partnerships with owner–operators rather than buying and flipping a business over the course of a designated hold period. We target established businesses with less than $3M in EBITDA, which is generally smaller than traditional PE funds target, creating an opportunity in which there is less competition for deals and more opportunity for us to add value at an operational level.

Investment Team


Target Company Size: Less than $3,000,000 in EBITDA

Investment Stage: Profitable companies in mature industries. We are industry agnostic if we find the right management team and business model.

Geographic Location: Targeting opportunities in the Southwestern United States, close to City Different Investment’s home office in Santa Fe, New Mexico. We will be open to discussing options outside of the Southwest on a case-by-case basis.
