“When Ted and I founded Union Square Advisors over 15 years ago we had two guiding principles in mind – create a strong platform where professionals understood technology, mergers and acquisitions and capital markets, and attract individuals who highly value teamwork and cooperation. Today we absolutely excel in both.”

Carter McClelland, Chairman
Co-Founded the company in 2007

“When we wrote the business plan for USA, we had one overarching goal: to work with the most influential companies in technology on industry-defining strategic transactions, and have fun doing it. And in that I think we’ve succeeded, with flying colors. We’ve built a tremendous team and an amazing track record – and we’re just getting started!”
