The partnership with Mountaingate will help Imagine achieve our next stage of growth and permit us to further accelerate innovation through resources and capabilities,” said Sam Khashman, CEO and Founder. “After an extensive search for a business partner who aligns with Imagine’s client-focus, and our culture, Mountaingate’s track record and their experience in partnering with entrepreneurs provided the right partnership for us.
