The Top 50 Lower Middle Market Technology Investors & M&A Advisors [2024]


Axial is happy to release its 2024 publication of the Top 50 Lower Middle Market Technology Investors and M&A Advisors: a list that features Axial’s 50 most active and sought-after members who specialized in transactions across various tech sectors over the past 12 months (full methodology below).

In addition to celebrating these featured members, we’d also like to share insight into the overall platform activity that informed the list.

One item of note is that while technology was ranked only the fourth highest industry as it relates to total deal flow in Axial in 2023, deals in the tech sector had the leading pursuit rate at 8.92%. This was a tenth of a percentage point higher than the runner-up – healthcare – and was based off of a total of 974 technology-focused deals.



Our Top 50 technology list was generated based on a weighted formula leveraging four key metrics:

  • The number of technology deals brought to market via Axial (sell-side)
  • The level of interest those deals generated from Axial’s buyside member base
  • The number of specific technology-focused investment mandates created in the platform (buyside)
  • The number of technology deals that progressed through the deal funnel achieving a signed NDA, shared CIM, received IOI, received LOI, executed LOI or successfully consummated transaction (buyside & sell-side).

Congratulations to these members for their achievements!
