Testimonials

Our entrepreneurs are our best references

(merged with Certify, a portfolio company of K1 in a transaction valued at over $1B)

“As our first institutional investor, Argentum represented an ideal firm to help us scale from our bootstrapped origins. They provided sound advice, acted like a true partner and supported us every step of the way through our successful exit. The nearly two years they spent trying to convince us to take outside capital was well worth it.”

Alan Rich, Co-Founder and CEO

(acquired by a portfolio company of Accel-KKR and ParkerGale)

“As a rapidly growing and profitable bootstrapped SaaS company, we did not need any outside investors.  Moreover, we were averse to private equity firms that sought control or highly dilutive ownership stakes – especially those that looked to impose major and disruptive changes to our business.  In contrast, Argentum offered the optimal amount of capital for our stage, and promised to serve as a supportive ‘roll-up-the-sleeves’ partner – and they delivered. Employing a truly founder-friendly approach, Argentum’s contributions far exceeded their commitment and what we expected from minority stakeholders. Working tirelessly on our behalf, Argentum assumed shared responsibility and ownership for our success, directly originated several major strategic and customer wins, and sourced a robust pipeline of acquisitions. Argentum was instrumental in accelerating our growth, creating significant value, and helping us achieve a very successful outcome, as a valued partner and true extension of the Flightdocs team.”

Rick Heine, Founder and CEO

(active portfolio company)

“From the onset of our partnership, Argentum has been laser-focused on adding value to our business and serving as a true extension of our team. Argentum continually provides my co-founders and me with actionable insights and valuable strategic advice and takes a very active role in originating and executing strategic partnerships, initiatives and acquisitions. This level of support from an investment partner is invaluable for founder-led companies at our stage of growth.”

Mike Guagenti, Co-Founder and CEO

“Argentum was an important contributor to our success. They supported us through our early challenges, led our acquisition efforts to build an industry leading company and helped us achieve a successful exit. They provided us with a lot more than just capital.”

David Broome, Founder and CEO
