Our Mission

Large companies increasingly rely on mergers and acquisitions to grow their businesses, yet ~70% of M&A endeavors fail. We believe the current tools being used by M&A professionals majorly contribute to the problem, and we aim to fix that.

It’s 2018, yet Excel, email exchanges and VDRs are the tools typically used to manage M&A. With these solutions, you spend more time buried in admin work than you do creating value. Midaxo is an M&A-specific platform built by M&A professionals, for M&A professionals. We are now the M&A platform of choice for world-class companies such as HP Enterprise, PTC, Philips and ADT.

Are you ready to modernize the way you do M&A?
