Aquaa Partners is London-based investment banking firm providing M&A advice to growth-focused companies interested in the Technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) sectors. We have developed the proprietary Techquisition method (the “Science of Tech Company Acquisition”).

The firm was founded in 2010 by Paul Cuatrecasas (who had previously founded Alegro Capital in 2003 and co-founded ARC Associates in 1993).

We help growth-focused companies to create more value, guard against disruption and enhance the customer experience by acquiring the right tech company. We advise our clients on using and leveraging the essential 12 steps of Techquisition to create and retain maximum value from a tech company acquisition.
