Technology M&A

Supporting you in transformative tech-led transactions

Exponential technologies, fast growing ventures, digitalization and big data are fundamentally changing markets and industries. Therefore, it does not surprise that Technology is dominating M&A activity. With the increasing importance of technology M&A, the nature of M&A deals is changing as well. It requires business leaders to rethink their M&A playbooks and focus on growth acceleration, business transformation and optionality.

Our dedicated Technology M&A team in Amsterdam advises tech companies on fundraisings, buy-outs, exits, joint ventures and buy-and-build acquisitions, as well as corporate clients to shape and execute their disruptive M&A growth strategies. With building value at the core of our focus, we work seamlessly with you across all stages of planning and executing acquisitions and divestitures. 

Shaping the future through M&A

We have deep expertise in advising fast-growing software, cloud and hardware companies that will become future industry leaders. Whether it’s technology that is powering the Energy transition, platforms and vehicles that are driving massive shifts in Mobility, alternative food production solutions that are nourishing an AgTech revolution, cloud-enabled infrastructure solutions that make Work more productive, or apps and tech that consumers are banking on to transform Financial Services, Deloitte partners with companies that have visionary views for the more sustainable, equitable world of tomorrow.
