Mergers and Acquisitions

Cogent Growth Partners Welcomed by ChannelE2E

Since ChannelE2E first launched in September 2015 our site has been a destination for channel partners on an entrepreneurial journey. The E2E, in case you haven’t heard it explained before, stands for Entrepreneur to Exit. That’s always been the underlying theme of this site.

Many things have changed in the nearly nine years since ChannelE2E launched. For instance, cybersecurity has grown in importance for the industry and our audience as cybercriminals and ransomware organizations have targeted the small and mid-sized business customers that MSPs serve. Because of that we’ve made cybersecurity a growing focus of our site. And we’re now proud to be a resource of our parent company CyberRisk Alliance.

But some things have stayed exactly the same, and that includes our focus on the Entrepreneur to Exit journey. Our coverage of mergers and acquisitions in the managed services market is unmatched. Our mergers and acquisitions list is a destination MSPs and those who want to invest in MSPs. We regularly work with private equity firms and advisors to MSPs when it comes to M&A, to learn from their perspectives on trends in the market and share them with you.

That’s why we are so excited to announce that Cogent Growth Partners has taken this relationship one step further, supporting our rich community of MSPs at ChannelE2E as our M&A advisory firm sponsor. Cogent Growth Partners is no stranger to the MSP community. The company serves as a top advisory firm specializing in mergers and acquisitions for the IT services industry.

Cogent Growth Partners and ChannelE2E: The Partnership

This new partnership marks a significant step in our continued commitment to guiding IT service providers through every stage of their business journey, from Entrepreneur to Exit.

“We are thrilled to partner with ChannelE2E and the CyberRisk Alliance family,” said Rick Murphy, CEO & managing partner at Cogent Growth Partners. "Since our inception in 2010, we have been exclusively helping IT service providers, MSPs and MSSPs realize their potential, and our daily work exactly overlaps with ChannelE2E’s core mission and industry focus. All of us on the Cogent Growth Partners team are looking forward to a mutually beneficial sponsor relationship and helping the IT service provider channel grow and prosper well into the future.”

CyberRisk Alliance’s executive suite also expressed enthusiasm over the partnership.
