The Deal

Under the ownership of the venture capital funds Evolution Equity, b-to-v Partners and the founder, eperi managed to accelerate its technological leadership and breakthrough in the market. With a significant influx of new customers and sales across different sectors and geographies, eperi was at an inflection point to find a new partner. While managing the corporate growth momentum and being faced with interest from different investors, eperi found the right partner in Equistone to further scale the organization and support the company in building a strong pan-European platform for future growth.
