About Us

Marathon runners aren’t fazed by the unwelcomed rain shower or people. They have trained to overcome any obstacle. They adjust, and move on. Successful companies live by the same playbook: steadfast, adaptive and in it for the long haul.

Founded in 2001 by co-CEOs Steve Rosen and Bassem Mansour, Resilience Capital Partners is grounded in that philosophy. We are a team of world-class senior investment and operations professionals, with broad industry experience and strong track records of success.

We’ve been greatly influenced by our Midwestern roots, gaining strength from those around us who persevere during unanticipated adversity. A crop season may produce low yields. A factory may face offshore competition. Being able to adjust to these challenges is, by definition, resilience.

Investment Philosophy

Resilience Capital has access to a large outside Executive Advisor Network, including the Resilience Innovation and Technology team, which is a key competitive advantage for Resilience. This group consists of more than 40 external advisors who are established business and technology leaders, with experience from different industries and regions from around the world.

The Executive Advisor Network includes CEOs, industry experts, entrepreneurs, engineers and technologists contributing skills relevant in various ownership phases. They are an integral part of the Resilience investment model and provide competence on operational and strategic issues in their fields of expertise.

Our Executive Advisors also assist in identifying and evaluating attractive investment opportunities, take positions on portfolio company boards and support development throughout Resilience ownership. Resilience investment professionals and Executive Advisors work closely together in the due diligence process to ensure it is executed in the best possible manner.
