Omair Sarwar Featured on Panel at ACG SaaS and Tech-Enabled Services Conference

PHILADELPHIA, PA – Omair Sarwar, Partner at SFW Capital Partners, was recently featured on the “Market Trends and Industry Outlook” panel at the 2019 ACG SaaS and Tech-Enabled Services Conference. 

As a panelist, Omair drew on his years of experience as an evaluator of software and information investment opportunities, in addition to his perspectives from supporting the growth and development of several successful technology companies such as DaySmart Software, Devada, Greenshades Software, and Swiftpage. He was joined by other technology-focused, senior-level professionals from investment banks and investment firms. Specifically, Omair provided perspectives on topics such as:

  • Specialization: In increasingly competitive markets, SFW’s decades-long focus on data-centric software and information businesses has been a critical ingredient to success in both investment selection as well as the strategic and operational development of its investments.
  • Product Development: Private equity investors focused on growth-stage technology companies will need to support the product development initiatives of these businesses. The ability to evaluate and execute against product development strategies has been a key differentiator for SFW and a critical component of the firm’s investment philosophy
  • Talent Development: Another consistent area of opportunity is working with growth-stage businesses to find the right talent to fill key functional gaps or complement management teams through appropriate mentorship or an injection of relevant domain expertise. Given that SFW has been operating within specific sectors of the technology landscape for decades, the firm has been able to leverage a robust network of operating advisors in support of its investments
