What we believe

In the past two years, more than a trillion dollars have been invested in software companies at record prices. And in many cases, the underlying tech is the greatest enabler to the business strategy. But has the approach to govern technology value creation caught up to the magnitude of the risk?

We believe a better way is possible – a more programmatic, proactive approach to actively manage technology throughout the investment lifecycle – and that’s what we do.

Our role

We know that technology can create truly transformative change, and its role in business is only growing. Crosslake is here to support the changemakers and help them buy, build, and run better technology.

  • Creativity. We are inspired by the constant pursuit of better.

In this role you will:

  • Work with technology companies to identify improvements of existing technology, organizations, processes, and tools used to develop software products and services.
  • Work with private equity companies and other investment firms to help them understand the technology strengths, risks, and opportunities for improvement for potential investments (I.e. technical due diligence)
