We intend to focus our search on middle-market emerging growth technology-focused companies in the Americas, in the SaaS and Technology or Fintech and Financial Services sector.

Our management team is led by Mr. Patrick Orlando, our Chairman and CEO, who has served many executive roles in Finance over a 25-year career. Mr. Orlando’s experience covers all aspects related to special purpose acquisition corporations (“SPACs”) as he has been involved as Executive, Sponsor and Director in several SPACs including Yunhong International (Nasdaq: ZGYH), Benessere Capital Acquisition Corporation (Nasdaq: BENE) and Maquia Capital Acquisition Corporation (Nasdaq: MAQC). Over his career, Mr. Orlando has developed an extensive network and we believe his knowledge and exposure on a global scale will enable us to locate and attract potential targets.
