Nitin Khanna, an entrepreneur at heart, established another firm together with his brother known as MergerTech. MergerTech is an investment bank that is headquartered in California. The firm focuses on providing capital and offering buyout deals to early-stage firms including small businesses that are worth less than 100 million dollars. Nitin Khanna will serve as the firm’s CEO and will run the business while in Portland. Nitin Khanna’s brother will serve as Merger Tech COO and will be the one carrying out the business operations in California.

Nitin Khanna is optimistic that the new investment will have a substantial market for its services. The niche that Merger Tech chose is free from completion from big investment banks that targets big businesses. According to Nitin Khanna, Merger Tech considers three factors when selecting potential clients. One of the things that they look out for is businesses that are in distress and are seeking for a fast buyout deals to salvage investors equity.
