Welcome to Grandlark Investments Inc.

Grandlark Investments Inc. (GII) is a boutique, private equity group, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, that specializes in investing is small, emerging companies that are based in North America — with a preference given to those based in Vancouver and the lower mainland.

Typical deal size is between $200,000 CDN and $1,000,000 CDN and we most often take a majority position while leaving the founder or current owner(s) in place with a significant minority stake. With some exceptions, our normal strategy is primarily “buy and hold” for the longer term.

Industries that GII is interested in include, but are not limited to:

  • Food manufacturing and distribution, including beverages
  • Wholesale apparel
  • Psychological assessment instruments
  • Microbreweries
  • Green initiatives

We are especially interested in emerging companies that have strong IP and product development, and which primarily require expertise in operations, systems and strategy implementation, and sales and marketing.

For each acquisition, we typically assemble a world-class board advisory group that has extensive industry specific experience. As well, we enjoy challenging businesses that can benefit from focus, team work and the ability to populate the acquired company with top-notch team members.
