Safeguard’s business model was validated with our acquisition of Acceller. The ability to tap into experts on the Safeguard team was invaluable in our M&A process. Safeguard’s motto of providing capital and operational support rings true, along with moral support, strategic insight, wise counsel and detailed management. I’ve heard a lot about—and now have personal experience with—Safeguard’s powerful and highly impactful platform.
