JB46 is a fantastic partner that helps bring relevant and candid questions for industry analysis, potential deals, and overall search strategies. The team is willing to help, encourage, and in cases of need, caution on possible issues that might arise with an investment. Hands down a fantastic partner and investor! As a US-based searcher, JB46’s perspective of international deals is very relevant and brings a fresh perspective!


As an early investor and board member of our company, JB46 has been an invaluable asset to our team. Their support, guidance, and coaching have been instrumental in helping us navigate the complex world of business and entrepreneurship.

Operating CEO

As a searcher, it is of the utmost importance to have professional partners on your side, always responsive, emphatic and knowledgeable. So far in our journey, JB46 and its team proved multiple times to fall in this category.


I feel lucky to be partnering with JB46. Counting on their support was key during fundraising and is really helping during the search phase as well, as they are very proactive and open to provide great insights not only in developing robust investment thesis but in optimizing our search process.


I have had the pleasure of working with JB46 for almost one year, and their team truly stands out from the rest. Their fast decision-making abilities and individual thinking resulted in an extremely well-organized and efficient process. But what truly sets them apart is their continual support and guidance by making introductions and providing invaluable insights.

I never felt like I was going through this journey alone because they always had my back.
