I’d also like to thank John Garcia and Solyco Capital for their continuous support. They were some of earliest investors in Aira and have been integral in our growth. As we raise our Series A over the coming months, their upfront $10m placement is going to fuel our momentum and strengthen our capabilities.
The difference in our operations is like night and day. We were looking for help in a few select areas and what was delivered was beyond our wildest expectations. The team came in and assessed our situation, strengthened and improved areas that were deficient and most importantly had a global plan for improving literally every aspect of our practice. The team is professional, organized and approachable. They problem solve and put plans in place to correct issues. Dan is in the process of transforming and organizing our office in ways we never thought were possible. I would encourage anyone to reach out to them for their expertise. Dan has the support and confidence of our entire team.
The act of fundraising should make a company more focused and suited to meet its goals. John and the Solyco team asked intelligent questions and offered insightful feedback as we went through the due diligence process. They were instrumental in successfully raising the capital we needed for explosive growth. John continues to direct the company’s expansion as a Board Member, catalyzing the right discussions at the right times.
Solyco was instrumental in the merger and acquisition of Dark Horse. It was by far the hardest M&A I have dealt with and I have done many over my career. They have also been on top of the stimulus, Cares Act, Grants, COVID protocols, loan forgiveness, and everything surrounding the pandemic. I can guarantee you we would not still be standing without them.
