Generational Transfer Entrepreneurs (GTE) is a private investment firm that works with a group of entrepreneurial Operators-in-Residence (OIR) looking to individually acquire, operate, and grow privately held businesses. GTE offers business owners a unique transition opportunity. Our entrepreneurs are ready to step into the ownership role and create long-term value for the company, while preserving the legacy that has been built.
GTE's entrepreneurial OIRs acquire great businesses. GTE seeks to enrich the legacy of our acquired companies, support existing employees and generate higher value through growth. GTE fosters the development of business leaders and ensures successful transitions with help from seasoned management professionals, advisors and deal specialists.
GTE's Operators-in-Residence represent the next generation of business leaders. OIRs take an active management role in the identification, acquisition, successful operation and subsequent recapitalization of businesses. Our team of OIRs is made up of business professionals who have unique backgrounds ranging from military officers to executives at privately held businesses. OIRs understand the importance of preserving a business’s legacy and are eager to successfully guide companies toward a successful future.
GTE also employs Operator Associates (OA), who are highly specialized professionals and business leaders looking for opportunities to operate businesses in specific industries. OAs are brought into a deal when GTE identifies a deal that is not chosen by an OIR but is still deemed a good deal for GTE.
Management & advisors
GTE benefits from principals and advisors with years of operating and management experience. We understand that each business situation has its own unique requirements and opportunities, and believe that having experienced managerial support for the OIRs is important to achieving success, while minimizing risk exposure.
