Acquisto was founded in 2015 as Mergers and Acquisitions advisory firm specializing in cross-border transactions in the Technology sector. Since the beginning, we have maintained offices in Boston as well as in Hyderabad, India. Our partners have extensive industry experience and many of the deals we have worked on are cross border transactions.
Acquisto is defined by its integrity, experienced judgement, independent advice and personal availability, allowing our partners to build long-term relationships with clients.
Over the past year, Acquisto’s executive team decided to pivot towards independent sponsorship and away from one-off, transaction-based M&A advisory. Our core focus is in building and sustaining long term partnerships and creating value over time. We find it best when all parties’ interests are aligned over the long-term, and are excited about this next chapter in Acquisto’s story.
