August Equity invested in Air IT in January 2020. August has since worked with the team to define the M&A strategy, identify potential targets and successfully execute four acquisitions in quick succession during the Covid-19 pandemic, which brought its own challenges. August are very supportive and available to discuss, assist and provide counsel on all business matters at hand, including the refinement of reporting and forecasting which proved to be invaluable in order to make right decisions in quick order. All alongside providing management the autonomy to own the strategy and operations of the business.
