    IAN LIVINGSTONE CBE, LIFE PRESIDENT EIDOS
  • "Digi-Capital's strategy consulting brought an outside perspective which transformed my top management team. My execs changed from 'what can these guys teach us?' to 'how can we implement a new mobile strategy?' after the first meeting. I see a lot of management consultants who tell me their personal opinions, but Digi-Capital only gives us solid facts, analysis and direct relationships from around the world."

    TIM CHANG, MANAGING DIRECTOR MAYFIELD FUND
  • “As a South Korean mobile company with global reach, we know the market and see a lot of dealflow. Yet Digi-Capital brings us insights and dealflow which we might not otherwise see, and we value that.”

    KYU LEE, PRESIDENT GAMEVIL US

    VICENC MARTI, CEO AKAMON

    SIMON COOK, CEO DFJ ESPRIT
  • "Digi-Capital has helped us a lot in Europe, and our clients value them as much as we do. Their commitment to long-term relationships over short term deal making is refreshing, and their reach to the US and Asia brings something that others do not have."

    KONSTANTIN EWALD, PARTNER OSBORNE CLARKE
  • "You get your industry guys, your tech guys, your management guys and your VC/banker guys. They may as well be from different planets, and they don't talk the same language. Digi-Capital's Tim Merel is all those guys, and I don't know a lot of folks like that."

    MARK LONG, CO-FOUNDER ZOMBIE STUDIOS
  • “Tim Merel's deep expertise and superb connections are well-known - I treat him as a source of inspiration, and a terrific sounding-board when it comes to the tough-to-crack questions in the industry.”
