We partner with private shareholders and exceptional growth companies. 

 

Our Mission

Our purpose is to help leading, late-stage private companies craft solutions to address the growing market need for interim liquidity for their existing shareholders. We focus on providing liquidity to company founders, angels, active or departed employees and early investors. Our transactions often include primary capital to support portfolio company growth initiatives.. 


The Savano team has been a go-to resource for LifeLock and me since 2008 when they provided much needed liquidity to my departed co-founder. Since then, they have continued to be a constructive liquidity partner; but more importantly, they’ve been value-added business partners, and have stepped up on numerous occasions when the company needed financial support or advice.

Savano brought an unusual ability to bridge the interests of my VC investors and board members with the interests of the Company’s management and founders. I’d recommend to any of my entrepreneur/CEO friends to find a way to work with the Savano Team.
