Axial Radar: Tech-Enabled Services M&A Boom

Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Axial Radar!

Last week on Radar we spoke about the art of predicting investment opportunity. The ability to observe an obvious trend and understand its not-so-obvious impact on other industries.

Think about the e-commerce space. Plenty of investors saw the writing on the wall in the early days of the pandemic, putting money to work directly in e-commerce businesses. Others sat back, watched, and began targeting businesses in the Customer Relationship Management space (as an example). They understood that growth in e-commerce also meant growth in the software tools that support e-commerce. Head down to this week’s featured Industry Trends article to read more about the other less obvious tech-enabled services industries that saw a spike in M&A activity in 2020.

Our featured buy-side members this week include a Dallas based PE firm, a 40 year investment firm focused exclusively on founder owned businesses, and a PE firm founded by two veteran growth equity investors. On the sell-side we’ll introduce you to a printing & packaging focused M&A advisory firm and an advisory firm founded by a seasoned IT executive.
