Progress Partners is a Boston and New York based corporate finance advisory firm that works with owners and management of emerging growth companies to complete private placement and M&A transactions. Our deep industry experience, high ethical standards, cultivated relationships, extensive network, and entrepreneurial experience gives us the ability to build and realize superior financial value.
We specialize in nine different sectors of the technology ecosystem. Within each of them, our expertise is derived from years of work as entrepreneurs, operators, investors, and mentors. As licensed investment bankers, that background has led us to approach our role as an intimate extension of our client’s management team. In that effort, we become stronger together. For either private placement or M&A mandates, we are proud of our ability to recognize and execute upon the right transaction for a given client, rather than simply to be in pursuit of any deal that can be done.
Every client engagement has different functional objectives and requires critical thought, but most often Progress Partners is pursuing one or more of the following missions:
1. Develop and implement strategic plans;
2. Grow through acquisition of new customers;
3. Obtain investment capital to accelerate growth; and
4. Realize returns through appropriate exit strategies.
Across our sector coverage, our impact as advisors originates in our ability to recognize characteristics that are inherent to the strongest companies in the market; products and services built from true market demand that solve critical problems, and are supported by fundamental business models. We succeed when our clients succeed. In order to realize this success we operate with full transparency, ready and willing to deliver frank feedback toward the essence of getting it right every time.
