What We Do

Bringing Opportunity into Focus

We offer private equity buyside advisory for firms targeting the software, tech, and tech-enabled services industries. We specialize in sourcing proprietary opportunities for both platform and add-on middle-market businesses.


Integrity-Based Deal Origination

Senior-level attention from start to finish

Our clients benefit from senior-level leadership and attention with each mandate. We know that making an excellent first impression on a company owner is imperative. We do not rely on junior-level staff to engage with C-suite executives on our clients’ behalf.

Focused on the industries we know best

We don’t take on engagements outside of our core verticals. We specialize and are selective so we can bring our clients sector knowledge and a strong network of contacts.

Creating win-win partnerships

Success to us is not only finding our clients fantastic companies, but ensuring we’ve helped create strategic partnerships that inspire success where both partners benefit.
