A United Vision
We focus on helping you transform your company into a true strategic market leader — without compromising what made you successful in the first place.
Pre-investment alignment is the cornerstone of our approach.
Before we invest, we sit down with you to review everything we’ve found during diligence, from third-party reports to key insights. We make sure we’re aligned on what your future will look like and how we can help get you there, so that we can map a path to follow together.
To us, alignment doesn’t mean incomprehensible spreadsheet models and endless task lists.
It means understanding your market and our role in expanding your leadership position. Our deal isn’t done until we agree on a truly collaborative, highly versatile plan — because when it comes to the pitfalls and snags that go with building great companies, flexibility is essential.
Meet Our Market Leaders
Teamwork, Plain and Simple
In our opinion, “partner” is the most overused (and mis-used) term in private equity. Our engagement model isn’t based on micro-detailed reporting templates and meaningless metrics — it’s based on contributing tangible, strategic value.
You’re not looking for someone to try to do your job.
You’re looking for added value that only a software industry expert with a track record of success and an in-depth understanding of your business can provide. And that’s exactly our niche.
But don’t ask us — .
We focus on what really matters.
Swift and Sustainable Growth
Our experience and approach can help you rapidly scale to market leadership through M&A and structural organic growth initiatives. Let us combine our experience building market leaders with your specialized expertise in your market.
