About Us

Bestport Private Equity is an independent and entrepreneurial provider of private equity funding to support MBOs and accelerated organic growth opportunities. Bestport was founded in early 2005 by Ole Bettum and James Stoddart to deploy their considerable experience of private equity investing through a focused entity in a segment of the private equity market that remains under-serviced and under-supplied. The founders have backed over 50 companies to date and in addition to Bestport’s highly experienced executive team, we draw on the advice and value-add of our accomplished Advisory Board.
