Software/SaaS

In just the past two decades, the software business has transformed from boxed software on store shelves to cloud computing and service-based delivery models. The explosion of software-as-a-service (SaaS) has changed the way business is done, and how we interact with computing platforms in our daily lives. At Drake Star, we’ve had the privilege of working with leading software companies to unlock value and spark innovation through M&A, growth financing, and strategic advisory. As a firm, we have our eyes on the horizon to help our clients navigate the present and future of this industry.

HR Tech

A company's most valuable asset is its people. Recruiting, payroll, and performance management software enables companies to hire, retain, and reward world-class talent.

Communications

Communications platforms ranging from text-driven messaging to video calls have taken on unprecedented importance in our personal and professional lives, bringing teams and people together even when they are apart.

Cybersecurity

Secure computing systems promote and enforce trust in the digital world. Across any threat landscape, cybersecurity ensures valuable data and trade secrets are not lost or compromised.

IT Automation

Businesses rely on an increasingly complex ecosystem of technology solutions to maintain their operations, and IT automation delivers efficiency and reliability across the business stack.

MarTech & AdTech

Marketing and advertising technologies help companies reach the right audiences and maximize results from their campaigns. From content and email platforms to attribution and targeting software, MarTech and AdTech drive the business forward.
