We provide M&A advisory services for startup founders on how to exit for the best price possible.
NorthStar Venture Partners specializes in M&A advisory services for tech startups operating in the U.S, Europe and Australia.
We advise companies that have recently raised $10M or more on which companies to buy and provide expert counseling on price negotiations.
Whether you’re looking to sell your startup or acquire another company for growth, these transactions can be a huge risk. As M&A advisors, we bridge the transaction market gap between the small-scale deals traditionally handled by business brokers and the multi-million dollar transactions sold by investment bankers. As startup founders with multiple successful exits under our belts, we get it. We’ve been there and provide the guidance we wish we had during our deals.
At NorthStar, we follow the value alignment model to ensure the benefit we bring to the table aligns with the goals you want to achieve. We win when you win, that’s why we’ve structured our pricing to be net positive.
We work with companies interested in selling their firms or acquiring other companies with preliminary research and analysis before they begin the full M&A process.
These offerings include:
As a full-service M&A firm we walk you through each step of the acquisition process and align ourselves with your goals. For both buy-side and sell-side engagements, we have a simple fee structure consisting of a setup fee, monthly retainer and a percentage-based success fee. Setup fees are reimbursed to clients on deals over the $1M threshold.
We work with best-in-class investment banking, advisory and law firms to provide high caliber due diligence and transaction services for our clients.

"I partnered with NorthStar for guidance throughout the process of selling my company and to ensure I was getting the best deal possible. I felt confident that they could provide real insight given their personal experiences exiting their own startups. When you work with NorthStar, you not only get an M&A advisor, but also a friend you can trust."
