NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / April 23, 2020 / NorthStar Venture Partners (NVP) is offering entrepreneurs a revolutionary, specialized suite of M&A services. The firm's innovative "for founders by founders" approach was pioneered by its founder, Julien Meyer, a successful entrepreneur who envisions a new way of doing M&A. NorthStar's mission is to give entrepreneurs the same advantages in the venture exit process that are enjoyed by larger firms with global investment banking advisors.

For Meyer, who founded three ventures that enjoyed successful exits after earning his MBA, the impetus for creating NorthStar was personal: "I was frustrated," he explained. "I had been through the exit process twice on my own and did ok, but on my third exit, which was my biggest opportunity, I had failed at finding a reliable partner to help sell my company."

As he noted, his deal was too small to attract the attention of a large institutional banker or advisor. "I didn't realize how important it was to have one representing my team," he added. "I left millions on the table by not having valuation experts and third-party negotiators on my side. This prompted me to start NorthStar Venture Partners, a firm dedicated to serving lower-middle market technology entrepreneurs with services often only awarded to Fortune 100 technology companies."

NorthStar extends a wide range of services to both buy and sell-side clients. The firm's primary focus is to connect technology and software companies with private equity, family office and strategic buyers. NorthStar also focuses on helping entrepreneurs develop strategic growth initiatives and helping investors streamline their deal flow. Meyer's team has developed key strategic partnerships with large institutional partners who have helped the firm grow to its current level of prominence.

Meyer is a veteran of the tech community. A published author, he is also a Harvard Business School Leading with Finance Alum and a Top-Rated Startup Consultant on UpWork. Meyer advised on over 50 successful transactions before starting NorthStar. His experience has helped him understand the unique challenges that founders experience when trying to exit their ventures.


NorthStar Venture Partners is an advisory group and M&A firm that works with both buy and sell-side clients. They bridge the transaction market gap between the small-scale deals traditionally handled by business brokers and the multimillion-dollar transactions sold by investment bankers. As startup founders with multiple successful exits under their belts, the firm's principals understand the unique challenges inherent in this type of transaction. The firm is headquartered in New York, NY, with offices in San Francisco, CA and Orlando, FL.
