The tech investment bank for growth companies and innovative businesses
Carlsquare is a partner-led, independent tech investment bank that supports companies and their shareholders to implement their strategic goals. We advise owner-managed and market leading enterprises, growth companies with innovative technologies and business models, alongside venture capital and private equity investors, family offices and corporations that want to create growth and increase value together with such entrepreneurs. Founded in Hamburg in 2000 by Michael Moritz and Mark Miller, Carlsquare is currently managed by 18 international partners.
Cross-border M&A advisory with ten locations in Europe and the US
Since 2000, Carlsquare has been offering integrated cross-border M&A advice for companies and investors. After a strong period of expansion in Europe with nine offices we crossed the pond and merged with San Francisco-based investment bank Capital Clarity. With our US presence, we are building a global bridge to the largest technology hub in the world. Our European clients now have direct access to the North American market, supported by top-class M&A tech experts who have an extensive network and impressive track record.
Carlsquare is one of the most active M&A firms, with more than 500 successful transactions since starting out over 20 years ago. We add value through our extensive international network and many years of M&A experience providing outstanding client service. As M&A advisors, we have direct access to decision-makers and ensure the best possible positioning in transaction processes for buyers and sellers. Our clients are entrepreneurs and profitable growth companies, as well as financial investors.
