Cyber Capital Partners


Our Firm

Cyber Capital Partners offers its clients the advantages of extensive industry and transaction experience. Our experience allows us to work closely with owners, investors and management teams during the development of the acquisition criteria and strategic positioning phases.

Creating that intimacy early on enables us to effectively translate the goals and objectives of our client to potential business combination candidates. Cyber Capital Partners takes pride in the integrity we bring to each and every engagement. This integrity has become our differentiator in an industry that sometimes focuses too narrowly on "getting the deal done".

We are a small team of specialists. We measure our performance by the increase in value created for our clients – not the number of transactions or the breadth of our services. We do deals that increase value, and that is all that we do.

Our clients include public and private companies engaged in strategic acquisition initiatives; private equity groups looking to acquire or divest portfolio companies; business owners and executives seeking growth and exit strategies; and management teams seeking to purchase or recapitalize their companies.


Get in touch

We at Cyber Capital Partners know that finding the right partnerships to grow your company is not to be taken lightly. That’s why we offer free consultations to walk you through your needs, the scope of your goals, and your budget.
