Eureka Equity Partners (“Eureka”) today announced the recapitalization of Blueprint NYC, LLC (“Blueprint”) in partnership with Blueprint’s founders and senior team leaders.
Blueprint is a leading healthcare engagement agency that provides meeting and event production, training, experiential marketing, and strategic communications services to innovative pharmaceutical manufacturers and biotech companies. Founded in 2012 and headquartered in New York City, Blueprint offers an integrated suite of promotional services to its clients, with a focus on clients’ sales & marketing teams, that are designed to create internal stakeholder alignment and engagement and to provide mission critical information and training to support the commercialization and marketing of pharmaceutical products.
“Blueprint has built a reputation for superior quality and creativity and sophisticated technical capabilities, which has led to long-standing relationships with its blue-chip customers,” said Eureka Partner Chris Miller, who joined Blueprint’s Board at the close of the transaction. “Eureka has significant experience investing in pharmaceutical services, and we are excited to partner with Blueprint’s founders DJ Hanson and John Sideris as Blueprint enters the next phase of its growth.” Dan Black, a Principal with Eureka who is also on Blueprint’s Board, added, “Outsourced pharmaceutical services is a large and growing market, and Blueprint is well-positioned to continue its impressive growth as it expands its suite of service offerings and broadens its role as an invaluable resource to its customers.”
Blueprint co-Founder DJ Hanson said, “From our first meeting with the Eureka team, we knew they were the right partners for us. They certainly recognized our growth as a company, but they fully understood it was our people and our culture that is what’s behind that success.” Co-Founder John Sideris added, “Blueprint was already poised for incredible growth. We can’t wait to leverage Eureka’s resources and expertise to help take us to a whole new level.”
Webster Bank provided debt facilities to support the acquisition, and Fairmount Partners provided investment banking advisory services to Blueprint to facilitate the transaction.
