Banyan is run by entrepreneurs and works with entrepreneurs who are looking to sell their software businesses. We work with both sellers who are looking to stay on in a management role but seek liquidity and those looking to exit completely. In either case, we know that building a business takes years of hard work and our goal is to continue growing the business for the long-term.
Unlike typical investment firms or other acquirers, our plan isn’t to resell your business down the road. We aim to provide a permanent home for your business and want to continue the legacy of the company’s culture, product and teams that have been built over many years.
We will focus on the long-term growth and success of the business. We plan to hold our businesses forever and will provide the capital to invest in building the company’s products and teams for decades.
Banyan appreciates the strong relationships a privately owned business nurtures with their employees. We are committed to building the best workplaces in the world where employees are treated as long-term partners.
All we focus on is enterprise software businesses. This focus ensures we are well prepared to evaluate your business quickly and execute on growth after the transaction.
Your time is valuable and we will respect it. We work hard to respond to all inquiries within 24 hours and can make acquisition decisions very quickly.
Our structure allows us to be quite flexible. We will work in partnership with you on a structure and post-acquisition role that suits your desires.
We understand the concerns of privately held and family-owned business owners. We are committed to keeping every aspect of our discussions with sellers completely confidential.
