Eight Advisory provided financial due diligence services to ISH Holding, an Oxford-based investment company backed Strada Partners, in support of its acquisition of an Amsterdam’s recruitment platform Homerun.
Founded in 2014, Homerun is a recruitment platform that claims to be the all-in-one tool that helps small businesses make meaningful hires. It specialises in a SaaS Applicant Tracking System (ATS). Focused on enhancing the candidate experience, the startup streamlines the hiring process for businesses, allowing organised communication and team-based candidate reviews. The company’s client base includes Decathlon Netherlands, Douglas, Trifork, Dopper, Amac, Belsimpel, Joolz, and Mr Marvis, among others.
Backed by Michael Richards, Adam Reynolds, and Strada Partners, ISH combines private equity expertise with SaaS entrepreneurs to elevate businesses while preserving their entrepreneurial spirit and existing management. Specialising in scaling emerging SaaS businesses, ISH targets those with a minimum of around €1M ARR to high-growth enterprises. The team combines private equity specialists and experienced SaaS entrepreneurs with multiple successful exits. ISH invests earlier in businesses and guides owners to surpass the €5M–€10M ARR threshold. Their approach supports entrepreneurial decision-making at the customer level, with a global reach spanning Europe, the UK, and Australia.
This acquisition enhances ISH’s influence in the Netherlands and globally, expanding its clientele to over 1,500 customers in 30+ countries.
The Eight Advisory team consisted of Pieter Wygaerts, Yannick Goris and Caroline Pham.
