Technology Disrupts the Status Quo and Accelerates Business Evolution

While technology enablement is widespread through all areas of the economy, Cherry Tree primarily focuses on the B2B software and services segments of the Technology sector. B2B technology providers typically have limited short-term sensitivity to changing economic conditions due to their business critical solutions and high switching costs. Also, these providers often have recurring revenue components that results in less volatility of business results and favorable cash flow dynamics.
