Tech Growth Advisory
Waypoint has applied its deep expertise to offer commercial and strategic services to the technology sector, guiding the unique growth phases of software ventures.
Software is becoming increasingly critical to the creative sector, driving value for customers and business productivity. The sector is also at the vanguard of the AI revolution, creating new possibilities for high quality, multi-modal customer communications at a fraction of the time and cost.
To meet the needs of technology businesses today, Waypoint offers expert commercial and strategic services to three related software segments:
- Pure-play Martech SaaS companies
- Specialist technology service businesses that design, build and implement customer experience solutions
- Software plays from agencies who have identified a strategic gap in the market they serve
We work with early-stage ventures to achieve market fit, get a solid foothold and, where needed, to raise funds. Waypoint also helps mature ventures to chart a successful path to trade exit and value realisation.
And we have a range of expert AI advisory services designed to help creative agencies capitalise on the huge potential these technologies offer.
