Today’s in-demand sectors are Mobile Apps, Gaming, SaaS, Consumer Internet, Social Networking, Big Data/Analytics and Cybersecurity. Over the past 10 years, we’ve enjoyed watching our clients go public, witnessed many M&A’s providing successful exits, and have helped thousands of people become millionaires along the way.
