Founded in 2021, Bravery Group (Bravery) was purpose-built for M&A, performance improvement and capital advisory across analytics, digital marketing, advertising and commerce companies.

There are over 9,000 marketing technology firms and thousands more services businesses that make up the marcomm ecosystem. Frankly, it’s impossible for external actors such as investment banks to provide meaningful context or strategic M&A advice beyond transaction particulars in this fragmented of a market. Bravery was founded to ensure business owners of digital marketing and analytics companies ultimately realize the true monetary value of the firm they built. We go beyond solid, fundamental M&A advice and provide deep industry expertise that fully considers the business context, marketplace alignment and future potential of the business. Let’s not kid ourselves, it’s hard to talk strategic value if you don’t understand the industry.
Bravery provides Extended Sell-Side Advisory Services in that we assist our clients with a comprehensive analysis of the state of the business and preparedness to “go-to-market.” This process determines whether a business is market ready and whether the performance of the business will achieve a premium valuation. Bravery is built on the foundation of honesty, integrity and trust and as such we believe it’s our responsibility to provide a thorough evaluation of a business leveraging industry knowledge and competitive benchmarks to determine if changes are necessary that will provide for higher valuations at a later date. Bravery’s industry and category knowledge, coupled with depth of performance, IP and solution delivery capabilities differentiates our offerings from traditional investment banks.
It’s why 70-80% of them fail (HBR). Bravery provides the perfect combination of strategic insights, support, and expertise in the M&A process. We serve as an in-house M&A team.
