Your partner when shit hits the fan.
Even great startups hit hard times. Whether it's a broken cap table, cofounder disputes, underwater common stock, or an unanticipated market dynamic — we're your trusted partner in revealing the great business underneath the broken incentives. We specialize in rolling up our sleeves when others run away, ensuring that a business has the right pieces in place to meet its highest potential — particularly through times of uncertainty or distress.
We believe high performance and heart work together synonymously, an approach that allows us to thrive in scenarios that others might avoid.
Our team is made up of builders, dreamers, and believers.
We’re not a bunch of bankers trying to make the quickest buck. We are founders and builders who are powered by possibility, and in it for the long haul. We measure our success by the pride we feel over our creations and the way they serve all stakeholders involved — customers, employees, and investors alike.
As a team of seasoned operators, our diverse experience and sense of adventure provides a unique ability to identify potential, instill best-in-class execution and management, and deliver meaningful long-term growth.
We are structured as a long-term holding company, meaning we don't have the broken incentives of a fund. We do this so we can ensure that what is best for each business is always aligned with what is best for our shareholders — the way it should be.
Our family of companies prove that the right partner through hard times delivers phenomenal returns for shareholders.
We build because we love to.
Our passion is to uncover greatness. We show companies what was always there — the value, excitement, and opportunity that got buried in the crazy.
We are open to out-of-the-box deals because we think like founders, not bankers. We specialize in designing deals that creatively solve for the needs of all parties, and we will never waste your time in unnecessary diligence or bluster.
An ideal Arising Ventures acquisition typically involves a well-built software platform with proof of an established competitive moat that meets our metrics expectations.
