September 28, 2021

Welcome back to the Recruiting Daily podcast! Today, I’m joined by Shane Hubbell of Alkali Partners to discuss HR tech M&A (merger and acquisitions) in 2021.

Shane is currently founder and managing partner at Alkali Partners, which is an independent investment bank that provides M&A and capital raising advisory to high-growth, primarily middle-market technology and technology-enabled service companies.

During his career, Shane has spent over a decade as a technology investment banker, software engineer and operations professional. He has advised on sell-side engagements with an aggregate transaction value of over $5B. Before Alkali, he began as an analyst at Goldman Sachs in New York, carrying dual BS degrees in biology and economics from Union College. Shane also completed an advanced immersive software engineering program at HackReactor.

The big questions we answer today: What unique or compelling things has Shane seen the market do since January 2021? Where’s the take on private equity companies investing in the talent acquisition and human resources space? How does Alkali help people understand what their business is worth?
