Canada's #1 Mid-Market Tech M&A Adviser





Exclusive Focus

Since its founding in 2015, Sampford has focused exclusively on Technology, Media, and Telecom (TMT) Mergers and Acquisitions. We don't get distracted by non-tech deals, capital raises or any other advisory services. That's why we have completed more Canadian mid-market tech transactions than any other firm. 

Investment Banking, Entrepreneurial DNA

Just like you, we started Sampford from the ground up. We're investment banking professionals with the DNA of entrepreneurs - our team combines 40+ years of experience in major financial hubs like New York, Hong Kong, London, and Singapore. We have offices in Ottawa, Toronto, the U.S. and a network that's truly global. 


Clients First

They brought multiple bidders to the table and in the end found us the right partners to ensure a bright future for the company and its employees. If you are considering an exit for your business, make sure you speak to Sampford first.

Ed and his team were exceptional like Navy Seals with expert professional precision, execution and guidance. Highly recommend to anyone!
— Bernie Aho, Strategic Advisor, Co-Founder, Board Member at ConceptShare
Having done a lot of M&A myself, Sampford differentiated themselves from many of the other advisers out there through their level of experience, hard work, determination and their participation in every facet of the transaction. Sampford works until the right deal is done the right way.
— Bruce Linton, Co-Chairman of Martello Technologies (former CEO of Martello Technologies and CEO of Canopy Growth aka Tweed)
