We are experts who get software deals done.
Razorhorse was founded in 2012 to source software deals for a single mandate. Today, we are a team of 45+, including software M&A and investment professionals, financial analysts, and research experts who work with a network of institutional buyers across the western world.
Our process is optimized to accelerate well-informed decisions between high-quality software companies and world-class investors and acquirers. We advise a world-class network of PE growth and buyout investors who deploy over $2b of capital annually.
We have engaged with tens of thousands of software companies, worked on thousands of potential deals, and closed 80+ deals since inception.
Our team has a diverse set of professional experience, working at firms including H.I.G Capital, Edison Partners, ESW Capital, AGC, and Constellation Software.
Why are you reaching out to me? We reach out to CEOs and business owners when a Razorhorse partner expresses interest in making an acquisition or investment in your company. Additionally, we may reach out independently if we believe your company is a good fit for the profile one of our partners are targeting. How do you get paid? Private equity firms and strategic acquirers retain us. We take no compensation from software companies, sellers, or investment banks. We do not sell any data. What happens to my data? We only share your information with our client, and we only share enough information to qualify interest. Once we do, we make an introduction. We don’t sell or publish your data.
We engage daily with a network on institutional software acquirers, first-time founders, seasoned CEOs, and decision makers at the world’s leading private equity firms. Through our buyer network, we often work alongside investment banks and advisors, providing access and collaboration during deal processes and market strategizing. As buyside-only advisors, we work seamlessly with sell-side representatives and augment our clients deal execution capabilities.

When we look for a deal for one partner, we often find deals that fit better for other partners. Our partners have benefited from network effects regularly, while conflicts are exceedingly rare. We take great care to ensure our partner’s mandates avoid most overlap. How do you get paid? Our partners pay us for origination services. Sellers never pay us. Intermediaries do not pay us, and we do not sell subscriptions to data.
