Investment Thesis

There are over 15,000 Marketing technology companies and over 49,000 Marketing agencies in the US. Most of these companies are small (<5 people), regional and specialized. Less than 1% (about 500) of these companies employ more than 20 people and can be considered large.

Their biggest problems are a) growing their customer base, b) hiring qualified people to meet demand and c) offering new marketing specialties which are required by customers without adding new specialized resources. Most of these companies have a niche (email marketing or SEO, YouTube marketing, etc.) and try to build expertise in that niche and slowly expand outside that niche, to meet customer demand - which constantly shifts.

Vangal is a private equity firm focused on digital marketing. Vangal buys smaller agencies and technology companies to a) optimize operations by using employees who can use AI in remote locations, b) increase customer spend by offering different services (end-to-end) and c) leverage generative AI technology to move more customers to in-house capabilities increasing margin.
