Based on their unique approach & proven execution, CERS quickly caught the attention of customers ranging in size from Fortune 500 companies to progressive startups. However their unique methodology of digesting of a business’ underlying investment thesis to align their technology consultation & candidate selection was an ideal recipe for private-equity portfolio companies.
To fully embrace the specialization in the private equity space & their native ability to deliver both people & solutions, Mr. Cohen recently launched Accuvise – a full service consulting firm offering process, people, and technology focused programs focused on accomplishing complex transformational change that few can deliver. The focus is not only to increase valuations, but to do so while protecting critical data and the processes in which employees access and interact with it to fulfil their role within the organization.
Our modern “gig” economy demands excellence in delivering methodology, program/project oversight, and the flexibility of a diverse ecosystem of boutique partners that collectively deliver over 40 niche solutions. This offers Accuvise clients single-point access to a rich blend of service offerings to ensure industry & subject matter expertise are aligned with technical proficiency & industry acumen. The result is an unparalleled experience from a customer & management perspective – one entity that oversees & tackles complex technology challenges in an efficient and forward-thinking manner.

This capital-focused business specializes in bridge loans & debt vehicles ranging in size from $2m-$75m. Together with his business partners, AIP consults, originates and syndicates opportunities & deals to over fifty funds.
