Traditional Methods

Fresh M&A Targets: Our ML platform actively monitors billions of corporate data points, allowing you to catch off-the-radar deals others can't find.

Augmented Intelligence: Our research team armed with data and world-class methodology delivers curated sets of targets, while dramatically reducing time to market. On average, we deliver targets to our customers in xx days.

Manual Methods: Relying on news alerts, scraping data into spreadsheets and manually scanning thousands of companies is not efficient and doesn’t usually yield the best results

Data Driven M&A Decisions: Savvy corp dev teams crave data-driven decisions. We quantify and optimize the target discovery process and decisions, resulting in a strategic competitive edge.

Anecdotal Evidence: Many acquisitions decisions are driven by personal networks and canvassing the market. Data and cutting-edge technology are leveraged for other strategic business decisions, why not for M&A decisions?
