About usSince 1998 we have been advising medium-sized companies on all aspects of M&A processes.

Who are we and what do we stand for?

On March 28, 2023, the shareholders of collective avantgarde corporate finance GmbH will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the company.

The company which was founded 1998 had the goal of supporting and improving technology-oriented startups.

However, with the entry of our current majority shareholder in 2009, we have shifted our focus to the consulting and implementation of purchase and sale transactions of companies, family-internal company successions, national and international corporate transactions as well as equity and debt financing of medium-sized companies.

With our team of M&A-specialists, corporate finance, tax and legal matters and our personal consulting experience of 33 business years, we have successfully implemented medium-sized corporate transactions of more than 215 million euros.

Our process-oriented approach to each transaction as well as our business network are available in all industries and have contributed significantly to the success of our group of companies.

And where does the company name
collective avantgarde GmbH come from?

When we founded the company in 1998, we wanted to achieve something new and extraordinary together with our clients - to create a foundation of trust, discretion, and competence. Collective, which means "together", was quickly agreed upon. This was closely followed by what the company should stand for: not only initiating groundbreaking developments and changes for our customers, but also implementing them. This can be summarized in the broadest sense in the French term avantgarde. And so, the name collective avantgarde was born and still unites what the company stands for today. 

We look forward to getting to know you, your goal and to move forward together.
