What Clients Say About Our Solution


"We approached MADiscover to screen the European market for cooperation partners. The results portray a market research study of the designated search field - adapted to our individual requirements. It was especially helpful to get an objective view on the market without our own internal company preconceptions. 

We were surprised about the speed and scope.

We received a more extensive list of companies much faster than the months we would have needed otherwise. Most of the companies have not been on our own internal watchlist until then."

Istvan Szalai
Managing Director, Doppelmayr Holding SE

 "Searching for fitting specialists in a vastly fragmented market overwhelms all M&A teams. Hence we turned to MADiscover to see whether technology can help us. The results from our work with the highly efficient MADiscover team were excellent. The amount of completeness, transparency and insights were remarkable. Not only that we could use the information for our short-term project, but we can also use the data as starting points for future activities."

Carl Rodling
VP Strategy and M&A, Gränges AB

 "We were looking for a specific technology vendor worldwide. We did a lot of anecdotal searches and manual analysis to find the hidden champion and it turned out that it was the proverbial search for the needle in the haystack.

So we eventually tried to use MADiscover technology to start a brute force attack to the problem. We did an automated analysis of thousands of companies. It turned out that the difficulties we faced were deeply built into the way how the technology vendor market was structured. Hundreds of companies used similar terms and vastly exaggerated the degree of technology capabilities and ownership.

After a few iterations, however we got a far clearer picture and had a comprehensive ranking of potential targets. With MADiscover technology we were able to focus on value-creating analysis of most promising and ranked targets instead of wasting time in endless website and document screenings."

Felix Kretschmer
Principal Key Expert | IT Technologies, Siemens AG

"As a global player with various businesses, the search for future partners and / or target firms is a mammoth task. Both the strategies and the screening procedures as such were traditionally very diverse. On the one hand, we are contacted by investment banks and M&A boutiques with business opportunities on a daily basis. 
On the other hand, hundreds of employees worldwide are constantly putting out their feelers. Coordindating this and establishing a best practice model is clearly not easy.

That is why we put a lot of hope in the systematic, repeatable approach of MADiscover. After all, we don't just want to keep repeating the same thing, we also want to always be a little better. And so far it has worked amazingly well with MADiscover, also and especially in very different search scopes."

Jens Messer
Head of M&A Digital Industries, Siemens AG

"Every year, Ernst & Young accompanies countless transactions in various industries, and still the key to successful acquisitions is finding the right target. MADiscover uses complementary and promising methods for identifying companies."

Bernhard Achleitner
Director | Transaction Advisory Services, Ernst & Young

"M&A has long been an essential pillar of Huhtamaki's growth strategy. The selection of suitable partners in various countries and markets has always been important, but also very time-consuming and expensive. With MADiscover we can finally quickly and cost-effectively screen several countries at once."

Frank Hofenbetzer
Head of Corporate Development, Huhtamaki Oyi
