Private Equity

Buyside Advisory Services for Firms Targeting the Tech, Software, and Tech-Enabled Services Industries

We bring opportunity into focus for our private equity clients—establishing thoughtful, mutually beneficial connections with the founders and owners of leading technology, software, and tech-enabled services companies.

Our focus is on ensuring our clients see real, actionable opportunities that overlap with their values and investment theses. Each client engagement is high-touch with senior-level attention from start to finish.


“Ether’s ability to articulate the investment ideas, culture, and track record of our firm is by far the best of any buyside group we work with. A CEO recently said, ‘The only reason I took this call with you is Ether.’ Ether does a great job of representing our firm.”

Grant Marcks
Partner, Origination

“Unlike other firms, Ether is very selective on its engagements. Our team knows we’re getting undivided time and attention rather than firms that take on 10 or 12 assignments just so they can collect a bunch of fees every month. Ether is the best we have by far. Their transparency and communication are off the charts.“

Matt Moran
Managing Principal, Head of Business Development

“Ether’s sector focus and senior-level attention are a big benefit for us. We gain a lot of efficiency in our deal origination and receive high-quality opportunities.”
