What we do

We are not your typical M&A advisors.

We focus exclusively on advanced-technology M&A, connecting North American sellers with global buyers. Our team is made up of former tech-industry CEOs and executives with deep technical knowledge and business experience. We focus on strategic value creation, maximizing valuation by developing strategies that leverage our clients’ Intellectual Property and team. All with a creative, entrepreneurial approach to uncovering unique opportunities.
