Our ideal merger target will be committed to Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance initiatives that maximize shareholder value and create wealth in minority communities. Further, targets must embrace minority representation at all levels of the organization including ownership, board of directors, company leadership, employees, vendor relationships and professional service providers.

Compelling growth story steeped in proprietary technologies, innovation and opportunities for U.S. and global expansion

Experienced, visionary management team, with a proven track-record
“The wealth gap is $14 trillion, and it is growing every day. And the only way we going to begin to close this gap is by getting capital at scale to businesses that have been historically under-capitalized to help unleash transformative growth.”
MEOA will use its network to identify businesses that meet our financial, ESG/CSR and MBE objectives
Once a deal is selected, MEOA conducts thorough due diligence to assess business operations, growth opportunities and alignment with MEOA ESG/CSR and MBE objectives
At the stage of acquisition, our team negotiates and closes a merger designed to maximize long-term shareholder value and meet our broader societal objectives
“The M&A and IPO process gives MEOA the leverage to identify companies with stellar business models and management teams that are committed to building a more robust MBE ecosystem by providing diverse vendor opportunities, jobs and ultimately greater economic inclusion in communities across the country.”
