The Janas Team

Wisdom and Experience for Today’s Difficult Times

These are tough and unforgiving times. Small errors and learning curve mistakes can be fatal. Lenders and financiers have rarely been pickier, or buyers, more gun-shy.  You may only get one chance and you’d better get it right.

That is why it’s never been more crucial to have seasoned advisors on your side. Janas’ investment bankers and consultants, recruited from the top ranks of industry and finance, have survived and prospered through recessions and credit crunches. The hard lessons of the past have prepared us to meet today’s unique challenges head on.

Whether you are seeking growth capital, making an acquisition, buying out a partner, or selling your company, Janas has the depth of experience and connections that can help you not only survive, but thrive and prosper.
