Build Senior Management Team Capable of Managing The Organic
Shortly after Level’s initial investment in ArchiveSocial, we hired a senior management team with the experience to manage a rapidly growing core business as well as execute on an M&A strategy and integrate the acquired businesses into the platform.
Level initially made an investment in ArchiveSocial. ArchiveSocial was a rapidly growing market leader in social media archiving and had built a robust sales and marketing engine to that end market. We were able to capitalize on the company’s leadership position by enhancing ArchiveSocial’s product strategy and acquiring NextRequest and Monsido to build a comprehensive platform serving all the communications compliance needs for regulated organizations and thereby increasing the total addressable market by over 10x.
To manage the organic growth as well as execute on M&A and integrate the acquired businesses into a platform, Level hired an experienced management team including a CEO, CFO, VP of Marketing (Government), and VP of Marketing (Commercial and International). This team rebuilt the company’s reporting and financial infrastructure and secured a credit facility to provide additional non-dilutive growth capital. Level helped orchestrate an exit process that led to numerous competitive offers, resulting in a sale to a strategic acquirer, CivicPlus.

“Level was awesome. Even NBA stars need coaches to push them to do more. Growth is hard and operators like me can easily get stuck in the day to day. Level helped us take a step back and look at the larger value creation path. From day one, Level identified the key value creation items we could improve upon and continually challenged us to execute on those. For us at Optimere, the primary leverage point was increased total addressable market. Level advised us on market landscape work, two acquisitions, debt and equity financings, integration and the subsequent exit strategy needed to drive an outstanding outcome, all in record time.”
