We automate screening and ranking based on applied science and AI algorithms.
We deliver rankings, quadrants, or profiles of an actionable shortlist.
Based on your acquisition strategy we scout for all existing firms on a global scale using numerous structured and unstructured data.

(products/services, technologies, verticals, etc.)
Your individual criteria
(innovativeness, digitalization, etc.)
(efficient, quality, flexible, etc.)
Your individual criteria
We create a dashboard that allows you to set weightings or filter your strategic criteria. So that your can simulate various longlist-shortlist contigencies and create detailed profiles of your final actionable shortlist.
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
