Black Hawk Acquisition Corp.

General Information

We are a newly formed blank check company. (Incorporated in the Cayman Islands) 

We will seek to leverage our management team’s proprietary network of relationships with corporate executives, private equity, venture and growth capital funds, investment banking firms, consultants, family offices, and large corporations in order to source, acquire, and support the operations of the business combination target. We believe our team’s extensive and applicable experience investing and operating businesses globally will make us a preferred partner and allow us to source high-quality combination targets. Our efforts to identify a prospective target business will not be limited to a particular geographic region or industry.

We intend to actively look for suitable investment opportunities with an enterprise value of approximately $180 million – $1 billion. We will prioritize targets that are already benefiting from or capitalizing on trends found within their respective sectors.

Our Sponsor is Black Hawk Management LLC. We will seek to capitalize on the collective deal-making experience and business connections of our management team.

Kent Louis Kaufman has been serving as our Chief Executive Officer and director since November 21, 2023, and has been serving as our Chairman and Chief Financial Officer since December 4, 2023. Mr. Kaufman has over 30 years of experience in executive roles, management consulting, and executive coaching. He currently serves as the CEO of the Growth and Leadership Center Inc, a role he has held since 2004. Since March 2020, Mr. Kaufman has been serving as a managing partner at BEEC Capital, a management and consulting company. He has also been a frequently utilized leadership consultant for Korn Ferry International, a recruiting and human resources consulting company, since 2006. Mr. Kaufman has worked with companies and executives at all levels, including CEOs, Boards of Directors, vice presidents, and directors. Throughout his career, he has consulted for companies including NVIDIA, Amazon, Google, Intel, Hewlett Packard, Chevron, Abbot Labs, Medtronic, Network Appliance, Barclays, Black Rock, Bank of New York Mellon, Cisco, Northrop Grumman, and Apple. From 1991 until 1996, Mr. Kaufman was one of the key leaders who took start-up StorMedia public in an IPO, where he served as the Director of Product Development. From 1979 until 1991, Mr. Kaufman began his management career at IBM, where he worked as a Materials Scientist and received the prestigious Outstanding Innovation Award from IBM. Mr. Kaufman received his Bachelor of Science from the University of Washington and his Master of Science from Stanford University.

We believe that Mr. Kaufman is qualified to serve as a member of our board of directors due to his comparable experience and background in executive management positions, where he routinely engaged in and fulfilled financial oversight responsibilities, which has resulted in his financial sophistication.
