Trident launched the Trident American Dreams Fellowship this year as a philanthropic effort to advance wealth creation for minority professionals and independent sponsors and operating...
We engage industry leaders to share our experiences and learn from best practices in asset management; value creation; impact measurement; and diversity, equity and inclusion.
We partner with best-in-class minority and women-owned service providers to support our portfolio companies in achieving our commercial and social objectives.
We work with associations and firms that help us access diverse talent pipelines for Trident and our portfolio companies.
To fulfill our goals of bringing private capital and growth opportunities to small businesses and providing equitable access to the American Dream, we know we cannot do it all alone. It will take coordination between multiple partners, starting with our Independent Sponsors and Operating Partners (ISOPs), but also leveraging the access, resources and capabilities of critical strategic partners who support the Trident team, our ISOPs, our portfolio companies, and the communities where we live and work.
Launched in 2023, the Fellowship is an upskilling program to support the awareness and education of private equity, small business acquisition, and for diverse professionals to become strong Independent Sponsor and Operating Partners (ISOPs).
Trident is committed to building up the small and medium-sized business ecosystem. Trident seeks partners that can provide value-added services to our ISOPs and portfolio companies and that share our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
