Founded in 2008 by Dr. Sheldon Elman and Stuart M. Elman, Persistence Capital Partners ("PCP") is Canada’s only private equity fund exclusively focused on high-growth opportunities in Canadian healthcare.
The firm is comprised of former owners, operators and regulators of healthcare businesses in Canada and around the world, with more than a hundred years of collective experience. We understand the strategic and operational issues business owners and management teams are facing. This makes PCP the partner of choice for growth capital, or to provide business owners with full or partial exit opportunities.
Deep industry knowledge and extensive M&A experience allow us to rapidly assess and act on opportunities. Our goal is to create significant long-term value by identifying and developing attractive investments with a focus on businesses across a broad spectrum in healthcare.
PCP seeks out investment opportunities in post-revenue and earnings, entrepreneur-driven, growth-and-service oriented healthcare businesses.
Our investors include leading Canadian institutional investors, Canadian financial institutions, and high net worth individuals. The Partners and Principals of PCP are also significant investors in our funds.
We believe in responsible capital stewardship; we practice transparency, timely communications and full disclosure to our Limited Partners.
