About Us

We identify meaningful business opportunities.

About Cyndx

We are the unlikely result of what happens when data scientists, a product team and a group of M&A specialists come together to reimagine how people discover business opportunities.

Since 2013, we’ve been successfully working with both companies and financial institutions to use data and technology to help streamline the M&A process.

We have developed and continue to refine a platform powered by predictive analytics that enables companies, advisors and investors to actually see relationships and emerging opportunities in the global market place as they happen.

The result:  we make it easier for the right investors and companies to find each other. In the process, we create more precise, actionable results for our clients.
