RevUnit LLC (“RevUnit”), a premier digital strategy and product studio helping enterprises digitally transform operations, today announced it has received a strategic investment from Denver-based middle market private equity firm, Mountaingate Capital (“Mountaingate”).
RevUnit was founded in 2012 when colleagues Joe Saumweber and Michael Paladino set out to find a better way to do what they love: build human-centric technology. The name RevUnit comes from joining the ideas of revving up business transformation with units of cross-functional technology experts. RevUnit has evolved into a leading digital consultancy providing innovative strategy and bespoke technology solutions centered around operational transformation for an impressive roster of enterprise clients. RevUnit’s design culture enables the re-imagining of business-critical workflows which helps clients overcome obstacles of scale, complexity, and innovation. RevUnit is partnering with Mountaingate to accelerate its growth organically as well as through strategic acquisitions.
“We chose Mountaingate because we found a strong alignment in culture and we were really impressed with their proven track record of helping companies like ours scale responsibly,” said Joe Saumweber, Co-Founder. “We focus on our culture intently so finding a business partner who not only respected, but also aligned with that culture was critical for us,” added Michael Paladino, Co-Founder.
Mountaingate is a leading buy-and-build focused middle market private equity firm based in Denver, CO, and was recently named one of the Top 50 best Private Equity Firms for Entrepreneurs by Inc. The investment in RevUnit marks the seventh platform investment for Mountaingate in its debut fund. All seven investments supported founder-entrepreneurs.

RevUnit is a forward-thinking leader in helping clients digitally transform operations to make significant progress in productivity, efficiency and employee engagement,” said Bennett Thompson, Managing Director at Mountaingate. “Many companies claim to focus on their customer, but I’ve seldom seen a business that partners so seamlessly with its customers.
