Over the last 20 years we have spent our time focussed in software and IT services businesses. In both domains, we have built deep technology understanding, networks and the practical wisdom required to scale fast-growth technology platforms.
Our track record speaks for itself with 17 software investments and over 16 IT services businesses spanning hosting, cloud managed services, unified communications and cyber.
With offices in the UK, Australia and the US, Livingbridge specialise in supporting businesses with international ambitions. Across this footprint, we have a team of 10 dedicated to technology investing.
As partnership investors, we are agnostic regarding whether we have a minority or majority shareholding. What excites us is working with ambitious businesses and entrepreneurs that are looking to drive change and find ways of doing things differently.
To support our management teams, we have built a dedicated in-house resource that delivers value creation across our portfolio using a playbook built up over many years. Key areas of support include: M&A target identification and evaluation; customer acquisition and retention; insight and analytics; pricing; talent recruitment and assessment; and international growth.
Whether national or international, organic or buy-and build – we’re here to help. We want you to succeed, but above all we want the journey to be fun as well as rewarding.
I feel like we have secured the perfect team to drive our ongoing development. This investment will provide us with significant firepower to acquire complementary businesses as we seek to build on the strong momentum we have generated and move towards our stated aim of doubling in size over the next three to five years.
