JP Galvao

Cofounder and CEO at VAI

“Working with Alejandro and Mike at Panthera has been incredibly helpful and a real pleasure. What those guys don’t know about the investment process probably isn’t worth knowing. After all, they literally wrote the book on it! I highly recommend them to any entrepreneur who’s looking for help on their fundraising process.”

Jason Bullock

Cofounder and CEO at Numerous

“Alejandro and Mike exceeded our expectations by taking what we thought was a sufficient financial model and translating it in a way investors resonate with. They also challenged some assumptions and affirmed others, key to making our story and approach more robust.”

Alex Boone

Cofounder at Bruvida

“We will repeat our experience with Panthera Advisors. Alejandro and Mike are outstanding and devoted professionals with clear focus and knowledge. Since the handshake, they led our M&A deal guiding us through all the processes, from the financial analysis to the negotiations, showing a deep understanding of each nuance and high level of interlocution during the outreach. They managed each step on behalf of our interests making us feel confident and backed.“

Jose Luis De Federico

Cofounder and CEO at Bizpills Group

“Working with Panthera was an experience that opened our minds. Overall, it was great working with Alejandro and Mike as they helped us either with the strategic thinking of how to prepare our pitch deck in a simple way or with how to build a complete and complex financial model. They have been very supportive and available when we needed.“

Diego Chorny

Cofounder and CEO at ShopAdvizor

Daniel Warner

Cofounder and CEO at MediSeen

“Having decided to establish our company in the US and open up for investors, Panthera Advisors with Alejandro and Mike, has been excellent in their professional way of maneuvering the process. Their previous experience plays a very clear role in how they deal with us as clients, each of them delivering on the field where they have considerable expertise. It is a great pleasure for us to work with them and they already feel like part of our own team. We look forward to continue the work with them as we move forward.“ 

Belinda Sousa

Cofounder and CEO Park Adventures Group

“Aside from the essential modeling and presentation; we got real-world, multi-faceted insight into what it takes to build success. Alejandro and Mike were never shy about sharing from their own experiences the things that would give us a real edge. This was crucial in helping me align our strategy and size up the kind of impact we would have on the market.“

Don Bahlman

Cofounder and CEO at I Open Innovations
