Crafting first-class deals for innovative technology businesses with international ambitions

At Clipperton, we work hard to help entrepreneurs and shareholders develop and maximize the value of their business. Our pugnacity enables us to accompany digital champions along their growth path in all corporate finance matters, from raising venture capital to arranging exciting mergers with international corporates. And we have done so for numerous success stories.


Clipperton has completed a large number of M&A transactions covering mergers, sell-side & buy-side mandates, for high-growth startups and larger corporations. Over 70% of our M&A transactions involve cross-border counterparties.

Growth financing

Clipperton has a strong track-record in assisting fast-growing technology businesses in their private equity financing transactions and venture capital funds in their investments. We generally focus on series-B/C onwards.

Structured financing

As the technology industry matures and more and more companies shift towards foreseeable profitability, we have built a strong expertise in structuring financing transactions including leveraged buy-out, management / owner buy-out/in.

Industry experts

The tech industry is global and evolving fast. In this environment, a banker needs to be specialized, data-driven and agile to provide excellence to his clients.

At Clipperton, we are passionate about technology. In 20 years, we have built a comprehensive and recognized expertise in the technology world and work hard to keep-up with this ever-evolving industry. Our mix of transactional, operational & consulting backgrounds pushes us to always think “out-of-the-box” to build the best possible “equity-story” for our clients, to maximize value and overall deal terms.
