Brendan Anderson has spent the past 20+ years as an investor and manager of businesses ranging from manufacturing to financial services. He graduated Fascinated by the capital gap within the small business growth sector, he rapidly came to the conclusion that providing best practices in addition to growth capital could consistently produce great results for the management, employees, communities, and investors. He is an active member and mentor within the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) and is continuously entrenched in its culture of best practices.

Connected by their passion for growing small companies, in 2005, he and partner, Jeffrey Kadlic, co-founded Evolution Capital Partners, focused exclusively on advising and investing growth capital in Second Stage Companies.

A constant student of entrepreneurship, Brendan spends his time away from Evolution listening to audiobooks on his ever-growing list of “must-reads.” He also enjoys watching high school hockey and traveling with his family.  He lives with his wife and three sons in Shaker Heights, Ohio.
