Meet Maneesh Bhandari, the Co-founder and CEO of GrowthPal. With a wealth of experience as an M&A Head at a large enterprise, ex-startup founder with successful exit and an angel investor, Maneesh has witnessed the entire wagonwheel of the M&A ecosystem firsthand.
In his lustrous career, he identified major gaps in M&A deal sourcing that were mainly due to:
- Lack of a reliable startup database with advanced intelligence,
- Corp Dev / M&A team's limited bandwidth to source quality targets,
- Lack of technology-driven platforms to source companies outside of your network,
- Investment bankers' vested interest in pushing sell-side mandates rather than finding targets per the buy-side's requirements.
This is where Maneesh, along with Yash and Shalu, decided to start GrowthPal and build a data-driven technology platform for corporates, high-growth and late-stage startups to help them find relevant and off-market targets that may be outside their network from the entire universe.
At GrowthPal, we are dedicated to cultivating a qualified M&A pipeline for our customers through our innovative and data-driven approach. We are committed to becoming the go-to partner for companies seeking reliable and actionable intelligence for small to mid acquisitions, acquihire or strategic investments.
