Software is eating the world and SaaS has the greatest appetite. As a result, software’s economic impact is surging as its growth rate far exceeds the overall economy, touching all industry verticals and all internal functional departments. The rate of innovation shows no signs of abating as software companies are capturing a disproportionate share of venture capital investments and making significant investments in research and development. Our bankers understand the transformative role software plays to drive automation and optimization in the economy and know how to position our clients so they can achieve attractive valuations for their businesses.
