About Smart Square
We work with you to properly position your company, creating value for all stakeholders involved.
Why Smart Square Ventures
We’re lean on process because we believe in doing work rather than making it. As advisors we are partners and collaborators at every stage of a company’s lifecycle — we meet your team where it is, and work with you to achieve success on your terms. In some cases we help companies chart their course, in others we get in the boat and row alongside management.
Depending on what structure is most appropriate for each opportunity, our ability to commit to a wide variety of services allows for maximum flexibility when structuring a transaction.
Our team has experience to maximize the return to stakeholders in any situation. We deliver decades of real-world experience advising high-growth companies on scaling world class teams, optimizing go-to-market strategies, measuring against key performance metrics, managing high-stakes acquisitions, preparing for life as a public company and building businesses that stand the test of time.
Backed with industry sector expertise, an extensive global network and a strong track record in M&A, strategic partnerships, and private placements, Smart Square is the right partner for emerging growth companies. Because of our background we are able to offer a wide variety of services of financial advisory, strategic consulting, as well as senior level operational experience to accelerate our client goals.
Post acquisition, our team is able to help drive long-term value by providing financial, strategic, operational and governance support that our management teams require to make their businesses successful.
At Smart Square we have deep industry knowledge and extensive domain experience in the sectors we operate in: Software, Internet Services, Materials, IoT & Electronics.
