Our Solution

Identify target firms across industries, technologies, and countries.



Adapt your search parameters anytime during the screening process.


Compare your shortlisted targets along individualized criteria

Our Approach

We understand target screening as the central strategic task of corporate development, where control, transparency, and traceability are crucial. Financial figures are not, as usual, the sole search criteria, but merely serve as selection criteria.

With applied M&A research as well as AI technology we integrate and process numerous data sources for M&A screening purposes.

We identify potential target companies in a wide variety of growth directions and regions, automate step-by-step longlists and shortlists, and create detailed profiles of relevant targets.


Tell us about your SCREENING GOAL.

Based on your acquisition strategy we scout for all existing firms on a global scale using structured and unstructured data.


Tell us about your SCREENING CRITERIA.

We measure and evaluate all firms using research-backed knowledge for creating longlists and shortlists.
Once set up your screening criteria are adaptable and extendable anytime - for one or several screening projects.


Play around and SIMULATE various longlist-shortlist contingencies.

We create a ranking and profiles of your final target shortlist once you have set weightings of relevant criteria.


What Clients Say About Our Solution

"In my network, corporate M&A executives have been hoping for years for a solution that addresses the M&A screening problem. Aggregated databases seem to have brought only small improvements so far. The real-time search and first-source screening of MADiscover is to my knowledge the most consistent product that has been developed for a long time."
