Dear Clients, Partners, and Friends, 

We are thrilled to share a significant milestone in Clipperton’s journey with you. As we celebrate over 20 years of dedication and success, we are proud to unveil our new brand identity, reflecting our evolution from a fundraising advisory boutique to one of the leading pan-European investment banks focused on technology.

Our Journey
Founded two decades ago by Nicolas von Bülow and Stéphane Valorge in the aftermath of the dot-com bubble, Clipperton began as a two-partner tech advisory boutique primarily focused on fundraising deals in France. Driven by the strong belief that technology would radically change the entire economy, the firm has rapidly grown to establish as one the European reference in tech advisory. Clipperton thrived with unwavering commitment to provide its clients with best-in-class execution, unbiased advice, a relentless focus on delivering strategic foresight beyond financial advisory.

Clipperton Today
Today, Clipperton stands as one of Europe’s most active tech M&A advisory platforms focused on growth and technology with a comprehensive suite of services covering M&A, Buy-out, Debt Advisory, and Growth Financing. The firm caters to a diverse and global range of clients, from entrepreneurs to VC and PE firms and corporates. With over 50 investment banking professionals, 3 European offices, supported by an M&A alliance comprising over 500 bankers worldwide, Clipperton continues to expand its reach and network.

A New Visual Identity
Our new visual identity is more than just a refreshed look: it symbolizes Clipperton’s evolution and reinforces our status as a European leader in advising tech scale-ups. This new brand platform reflects our modern, dynamic, and forward-thinking approach while honoring the legacy and core values that have been the foundation of our success.

Our Commitment to You
This rebranding initiative aligns with our ongoing commitment to innovation and excellence. We aimed to capture all the qualities you associate with Clipperton: expertise, reliability, and a forward-looking vision of the tech ecosystem. It represents our pledge to provide you with cutting-edge insights, superior advisory services, and unparalleled support as you navigate the complexities of financial transactions.

We invite you to explore our new look and feel, which will be rolled out across all our platforms. Stay tuned for updates as we continue to expand our capabilities and reinforce our position as your trusted partner in growth and success.
