What we offer our clients

Searches are Aligned, Researched and Professional

Harborside’s team has extensive industry and sourcing experience which is leveraged with our research and professional resources in identifying proprietary acquisition opportunities. Our acquisition searches are not just opportunistic searches for owners considering selling. Instead, searches are focused, are research intensive and align Harborside Capital with our client’s interests and objectives. We only commit to engagements where our resources and experience are in place to deliver on our commitments.

Proprietary Opportunities

Harborside’s objective is to identify and introduce proprietary opportunities meeting our clients’ stated criteria where an intermediary has not been engaged.  

Research and Industry Knowledge

Harborside team members have experience in many industries. We leverage our industry knowledge with extensive research resources in support of understanding target industries and analyzing prospective acquisitions.

A Professional Approach to Introductions

Harborside does not conduct “robo calls”. Instead, we capitalize on introductions through a myriad of sources, not just a single source. The results are recommendations and introductions through well-regarded parties that lead to productive initial meetings.


Harborside partners with clients as an extension of their business development efforts including the client's commitment to confidentiality. 

Search Basis
