Message From Our Founder

Gabe Galvez, CEO & Founder

Having built, sold and bought businesses I know first hand how hard the deal making process can be. Too often private equity and similar buyers are tasked with the overwhelming process of sourcing analyzing and managing acquisitions with limited resources or access to industry specific best practices.

It is our singular goal to develop more effective, scalable deal origination processes while reducing the costs associated with identifying acquisition opportunities. We view our continued success as a trailing indicator of the success of our clients who range from independent sponsors and first time funds to some of the largest private equity investors active in the market today.
