Former Insight Partners Investors Launch Nexa Equity

Nexa Equity LLC has announced its official launch. Nexa is a private equity firm focused on control buyouts of rapidly scaling lower middle market software and fintech businesses with revenues ranging from $5mn to $20mn. The firm was founded by Managing Partner Vlad Besprozvany, a former investor at Insight Partners and Managing Director at Greater Sum Ventures.

“Nexa Equity launches with an exceptional team, a differentiated strategy, and considerable experience gained from our involvement in executing and leading over 50 transactions on behalf of renowned software-focused investment firms,” said Besprozvany. “Our guiding thesis is to help build high-performing companies that serve market areas that are behind the curve on tech adoption. We believe this opportunity is currently overlooked at the company size we are pursuing, as many software-focused funds have grown to target larger assets. We are excited to work with founders and management teams to help them scale their companies and achieve their long-term business objectives faster and with more certainty.”

Joining Besprozvany are Shelley Perry, Growth Partner; Todd Cramer, Principal; and Joey Maloney, Principal.

Perry was most recently an Operating Partner with Insight Partners from 2016 to 2020. She specializes in advising CEOs on how to maximize growth during the transition from startup to scaleup, accelerated by institutional funding. She previously served as a CEO, CPO or CTO at Bynder, Ticketmaster, HP and NTT.

Cramer was previously an investor at Insight Partners where he focused on growth equity investments in software companies. Most recently, he was Vice President of Strategy and Growth at Ubiquiti Inc., a publicly traded wireless networking company. Earlier in his career, Todd worked as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company.

Most recently, Maloney was a Vice President at Luminate Capital Partners, a private equity firm focused on growth buyouts in the enterprise software market. Earlier in his career he was an investment banker at Arbor Advisors and management consultant at Waterstone Management Group.
