Edgemont Was Founded In 2001
After meeting on opposite sides of a transaction some years earlier, David Blume and Jeff Swearingen forged a bond and launched Edgemont with the vision of creating a specialty firm focused on the healthcare industry to serve entrepreneurial companies. Having both grown up with fathers who launched and ran their own small businesses, they shared similar entrepreneurial bloodlines.
In the wake of consolidation of boutique investment banking firms, and the turnover of bankers focused on this market at larger banks
through the internet boom and bust, they saw the need for a firm that could deliver bulge bracket M&A expertise to lower middle market and middle market companies. David and Jeff founded Edgemont Capital Partners in 2001 and Luke Mitchell joined shortly thereafter.
A decade and a half later, Edgemont stands among the leading independent healthcare investment banking firms, and is a highly regarded M&A advisor to founders, owners, entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial investors, and management teams.
