Tech investor David Siemer founded Siemer & Associates, LLC in 2007 to fulfill his vision of a true boutique merchant bank that works with technology, software and digital media companies throughout their complete life cycles. He co-founded venture capital firm Siemer Ventures, one of the most active VCs in Southern California, to work in concert with S&A, assisting early growth technology companies to achieve their full potential. He is committed to furthering the success of Silicon Beach for years to come, hosting the annual Siemer Silicon Beach Summit which attracts nearly 300 companies to Santa Monica each year for education, networking and growth.
To greater meet the needs of both local and global tech companies, Mr. Siemer expanded operations from his firms’ Santa Monica headquarters by opening offices in Hong Kong and Singapore. He also secured strategic partnerships with boutique investment banking firms in New York and Dusseldorf which, like Siemer & Associates, specialize in complex cross-border M&A transactions and private equity placements.
In addition, he co-founded Wavemaker Labs, an approved technology incubator by the Singaporean government, which promotes early stage tech companies based in that region.
