What our partners say about us

We were impressed with the Solano team from day 1 as, out of all the advisors we met, they demonstrated the most passion and ambition. The team’s energy was unwavering throughout the process and resulted in an outcome that significantly surpassed our expectations. Not only did they deliver an excellent result, but on a personal level, they were a delight to work with and kept what is a demanding process for any business, enjoyable and seamless.
GovTech business

Thank you Solano for your unwavering support, strategic guidance and sustained tenacity throughout this process. We first met Jon when he seamlessly delivered our investment round at the height of Covid in 2020, which allowed us to deliver the growth we have achieved today. Choosing to partner with Solano earlier this year was a no brainer and our decision was reinforced by how the team went above-and-beyond to deliver this transaction. Thank you again.

Mobility-as-a-Service business

We are delighted to have secured the $400m transformational investment for the business. Unsurprisingly, Solano was instrumental and provided priceless strategic advice throughout the process. The team identified the lead investor in the round and provided us with not only a trusted advisor but trusted friends through to completion.

Fintech business

Thank you to Jon and Steph for their tireless efforts over the last 18 months leading to this tremendous outcome. Jon provided leadership and invaluable advice, while Steph went over and above at every step throughout the process. They leveraged key global fintech relationships, whilst navigating several covid hurdles, and we are delighted with the final result. We would not have achieved this outcome without their dedication and tenacity.

Fintech business

Thank you to the team for their tireless efforts in recent months. They offered invaluable leadership and strategic advice, with diligent and supportive guidance throughout. They also behaved throughout as one would expect friends and confidants to act, which is very helpful in a confidential situation. We were delighted with the result and very, very pleased to have had them as our team.

Climate Tech business

We are delighted to have secured this transformational funding. The open market does not serve everyone and the funding enables us to provide a choice to many more sellers. We would also like to thank the team for their efforts – they provided invaluable advice and hands-on support throughout the process, providing us with a trusted advisor that saw the transaction through to completion.

PropTech business

Thanks to the team for their advice, guidance and unwavering determination throughout the sale process. We are all delighted with the outcome and are very pleased that we put our trust in you. You have exceeded our expectations on all fronts. It is rare these days to offer unconditional praise and absolute endorsement but, in this case, it is truly justified. We would all wholeheartedly recommend you to other business owners looking to achieve an exit. Well done and thanks again.
