Why don't you build the investment bank you wish you could've worked at?

Andrew Wilkinson to Louis Kaumeyer on the day Tenzing was created.

Our Story

Tenzing was founded by Louis Kaumeyer, Andrew Wilkinson, and Chris Sparling. All three founders had experienced investment banking from different perspectives, sharing a disappointment with how most investment banks worked.

Louis found the investment banking culture restrictive and toxic, stifling creativity and causing valuable employees to leave for better opportunities. Louis felt that creating a culture that allowed employees to feel empowered and valued would result in happier employees and extraordinary client results.

While Andrew and Chris, who had successfully founded and invested in various businesses through Tiny, felt that investment banks failed to deliver the agility and result-oriented execution that their substantial fees warranted.

Similar to how Tiny has become the buyer that sellers dream of by keeping things simple, Tenzing keeps the process simple for clients and focuses on execution and the aspects of the deal that lead to the client's desired outcome.

What makes us different from other investment banks?

Most investment bankers think of you as a walking fee and your business as a spreadsheet. Louis is a human and plays the long game. When he handled an important deal for me, he brought creativity and found a solution that gave me the outcome I wanted.

Did working with Tenzing add any value?

Massively! I’m looking to buy a business by the end of this year, with very specific requirements. I don’t think I would even know where to start without Tenzing.
They are there every step of the way providing deal flow and getting their hands dirty - all the while extremely patient with my dumb questions.
