Le petit IBM est ne

When you're able to raise enough capital to complete an 18-company rollup in IT Services in Europe and MENA, the local Economist paper jumps ahead and names you the "Little IBM". I found this cute and encouraging. It quickly became a crystallizing image for us in our Technology sector.

Mostly, the consolidation of these 18 SMEs was tough, brutal and complex. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenges, the people, and the incredible pressure from our investors; it is surely a homerun that even Barry Bonds would be proud of.

Until the next one...maybe from this upcoming new crop :)
