Cloud Managed Services
As the world becomes more reliant on digital communication, the demand for advanced digital Information Technology (IT) solutions is growing at an exponential rate.
How companies from SMBs to Fortune 100 giants are spending their IT budgets has also shifted. Insourcing and outsourcing are well-established, but in recent years, many companies, rather than outsourcing infrastructure and software support, are increasingly looking to Managed Service Providers (MSPs) for skilled consultants to provide a broad variety of services, or to outsource the entire IT department. The MSP market is highly fragmented, with a few large players and a large contingent of smaller companies. These smaller MSPs have struggled to adapt quickly enough to meet market demand, finding themselves limited by region, offerings, customer base, or simply the funds and strategy to grow.
Sequel Ventures intends to build a national entity that delivers a full suite of cloud-based IT services to SMBs as well as small and medium enterprises.
To do this, Sequel will partner with one or more forward-thinking MSPs. The CEO/owners will continue to run the day-to-day operations while Sequel Ventures will provide a full range of coaching and development, staff augmentation, funding, M&A, and geographic expansion. Sequel will build a seasoned management team to set the foundation for a consolidation and expansion strategy. Sequel will integrate the acquired companies to build the national entity.
Once fully integrated, the new company will offer a full range of services, including network administration, mobility service, VoIP, managed desktop and printers, SaaS/IaaS/PaaS and Cloud storage to High IT usage verticals such as legal, financial, healthcare, and technology. Our ideal venture partner is the CEO/owner of a successful and growing MSP company who:
- Knows their customers’ needs
- Has identified potential offerings their clients aren’t yet aware of
- Knows what the platform should look like
- Understands the growth potential
- Is entrepreneurial, ambitious and hard-working
- Has steadily grown the business but faces challenges growing in the future
- Is interested in expanding its geographic reach, increasing service offerings, and extending into profitable new verticals
Sequel has the IT knowledge; acquisition, integration, and operations strategies; startup experience in the technology space; and growth and equity experience to grow this enterprise into a national entity of significant scope and size.
