  • Step 5: Due Diligence
    After the LOI is signed, we start the legal documentation process. We will also engage advisors such as accountants and attorneys to complete the required diligence specific to your business. Throughout this process, you can expect transparency, authenticity, and confidentiality.
  • Step 6: Close & Celebrate
    On this day, we will sign the final legal documents, wire you funds, and celebrate together! You are now ready for the next stage in your life. A post-close plan will already be in place to seamlessly transition the company forward.

Meet the Entrepreneur

Ani Narasimhan,
Founder & Principal

 

Ani is a collaborative, strategic, values-based leader who founded Legacy Quest Partners to buy and grow one great business for the long haul.

 

Ani Narasimhan is from a small village in south India, where the legacy of his entrepreneurial grandfather still lives on through the family’s coconut and spice business. Ani spent his formative years observing the hard work and effort it takes to run a small business and its impact on the community. Ani completed his bachelor's in Bioengineering at SRM University, India, and relocated to the US to pursue his Master’s in Biotechnology Entrepreneurship at Case Western Reserve University.

Ani has a decade of professional experience in Sales, Marketing, Product Management, Strategy, and Transformation. He understands the challenge of working in complex, regulated environments. Ani managed a $150M+ product portfolio with sales in over 100 countries, commercialized multiple global products, orchestrated a successful company acquisition and integration (M&A), and has driven significant growth in Medtronic’s Head & Neck Cancer business. He holds four MedTech patents. Before founding Legacy Quest Partners, Ani received his MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management and was a member of the 2023 Zell Fellows Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition (ETA) Cohort.

Meet the Family

Ani and Theresa Narasimhan have three children and currently reside in the North Shore of Chicago. Ari (age 7), Rafa (age 5), and Zara (age 2).

 

The family has a Honeycrisp apple orchard outside Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, and taps their maple trees every spring to make syrup for friends and family. The couple are foodies, spending hours in the kitchen chopping and searing. The oldest two act as helpers, while Zara sits at the countertop nibbling and watching.

The Narasimhans can't agree on their favorite country to visit, but they do decide to travel as a family. They are an adventurous bunch– often hiking, road cycling, and swimming together. 

Ani is a fan of early morning meditation…alone.
