The best permanent home for successful enterprise software businesses

We preserve the legacy of founders, while helping to grow the business into the future.

Banyan works with entrepreneurs who are looking to sell but want to avoid seeing their business end up in the hands of a competitor or traditional investment firm. We work with sellers who are looking to continue on in a management role, as well as those who wish to transition out over time or exit today. We appreciate that building a business requires many years of hard work. Our goal is to continue growing your business for the long-term, and build on the many years of historical success.

Unlike typical investors or other acquirers, our plan isn’t to resell your business. Instead, we provide a permanent home for your business and will continue the legacy of the company’s culture, product and teams that have been built over many years.

What We Look For

Our mission is to acquire, build and grow great enterprise software businesses with strong positions in niche markets all over the world. Banyan companies generally fit the following criteria:

  • Annual revenues in excess of $2M-$30M
  • A high percentage of recurring revenue
  • Positive operating margins and cash flow
  • High customer retention and satisfaction
  • Happy and committed employees

We recognize that every software company is unique. Feel free to reach out to us for a quick and confidential discussion regarding whether we might be the right partner for you.
