Our Specialized Approach

  • Cascadia initially went out to a select group of potential financial and strategic partners. Based on the Company’s objective to identify an investment partner that could add value beyond capital, the potential investors were narrowed to strategic partners during the process
  • Ebates, which was bought by the Japanese holding corporation, Rakuten, in 2014, is a leading online cashback shopping platform and immediately positioned itself as a likely candidate
  • Due to existing synergy between the companies and a shared future vision of providing consumers with a more comprehensive and better online shopping experience, Ebates was an ideal partner for the Company
  • Cascadia Capital served as the exclusive financial advisor to Influenster
