Corporate Development
Advisory & Management Services

Waterford Advisors provides corporate development services to large established companies and small emerging ventures, either publicly-traded or privately-held, across the technology, services and industrial spectrum.

Corporate development – the intersection of strategy and corporate finance – empowers firms to accelerate their growth through acquisitions, divestitures, alliances or de novo (start-up) initiatives.

Established in 1993 in New York City as investment bankers to Silicon Alley pioneers, we now focus exclusively on corporate development.

Our clients engage us as a member of their executive team, either to complete a specific transaction or create best practices for future ones.

Our services are tailored to each client’s needs, but we typically assist corporate and operating unit executives with:


Due Diligence

Assessment & Valuation


Negotiation & Structuring

Monitoring Post-Close

In sum, we are both the internal advisor to our clients and the driver of deals meeting their criteria.

“From our point of view, your work in providing us with a basis for the valuation of our company was well worth the price of admittance.”

What Our Clients Say About Us

“You delivered what was at the time sobering news and built credibility and rapport in the process.”
“You stayed with us from the beginning, before the Web was fashionable and we were just four guys in a windowless conference room, all the way through our IPO seven years later. No one else did that.” “I guess the litmus test is, would we want to work with you again, and would we recommend your services to anyone in our position, and I would say resoundingly yes to both questions.”

“You delivered what we asked of you, and more.”
