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.
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.
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.
