Hi, I'm Adam

Adam Keesling

I live in San Francisco and I help software companies sell their business at ScaleView Partners. Shoot me an email if you want to chat.

Before my job at ScaleView, I worked at Compound. I led finance & strategy, and also wrote a lot of the articles on The Manual. During 2020 and 2021, I wrote Napkin Math, a newsletter focused on business and finance. Most of my personal online writing was written during this time.

I started my post-collegiate career as an investment banker at William Blair. While at Blair, I worked on large software M&A deals.

During college, I worked for a consulting & training company called Adventis. I made a lots and lots of financial models during my time at Adventis, but the most fun was teaching live bootcamps to college kids.

Outside of work, I like running, watching movies, cooking, and hosting dinner parties with my friends.

If you want to hear more from me, subscribe to my newsletter. I write a lot about business, but also about some of my other interests.
