We get to 'yes' faster than other investors

We don’t want to waste your time.  An acquisition process tends to be long and drawn out, both a source of frustration for you and your team.

Rather than a long and drawn out acquisition, we use our SOPHON data intelligence platform to fast forward the due diligence process. Our proprietary software takes the time and hassle out of data collection and analysis, giving us a 360° view of your company in days.

While we ultimately still need to perform confirmatory legal and financial due diligence, our software enables us to get to “yes” far quicker than other investors.
