"The Infinitedge team brought a remarkably broad set of skills into our business development process. They analyzed our company in ways we had never considered and helped unlock the value of our technology investments by tying them to high growth market opportunities. We could not be happier with the advice, guidance and plain hard work they brought to the successful divestiture of our TIA business. and made it possible to take our company to the next level."

Matthias Frei
Founder & CEO, Micram Microelectronic GmBH

"Infinitedge's experience and advice was a key success factor in getting this deal put together and I wanted to shout out one more thanks to your team. It was a long and exciting 6 months getting this deal closed, but now that Obsidian is fully integrated with ARM, I can truly say it was a win-win deal - the real measure of success."

Eric Hennenhofer
Founder and CEO Obsidian
