Private equity, corporate development teams and other investors need specialized product, market, customer and technical insight when making acquisition and investment decisions.

Gut Decisions Don’t Cut It

Spend Matters takes a bottom-up approach to
delivering granular insight and strategic analysis. 

Is the solution real or rubbish?

Is their product as good as they claim? Is there data to show how the assets stack up competitively? What is the real risk of disruption?

What actually drives this specific market?

What market dynamics matter most? What is driving TAM? And what could our potential share of it be?

What can we add to the recipe?

What are clever places to go next? What should we tinker with to create value vs leave alone? What should be on our shopping list and why?
