Emer­ging Europe M&A Re­port 2021/2022
Fol­low­ing glob­al trends, the M&A mar­ket in emer­ging Europe surged in 2021— more money was spent on ac­quis­i­tions and in­vest­ments than in any of the pre­vi­ous sev­en years. After a re­l­at­ively poor show­ing in 2020, trans­ac­tion volume also bounced back to pre-pan­dem­ic levels. Not only did dir­ect ac­quis­i­tions and in­vest­ments fare well, but stock mar­ket list­ings also reached un­pre­ced­en­ted levels. Has the M&A mar­ket in emer­ging Europe scaled new heights?Wel­come to the 2021/22 edi­tion of the Emer­ging Europe re­port.

Epis­ode #3: Why do start-ups fail?
Epis­ode 3 in the “At centre stage” series is ded­ic­ated to start-ups. True, it’s not an in­dustry or sec­tor. But non­ethe­less, the ma­jor­ity of mar­ket lead­ers, es­pe­cially in fast-paced in­dus­tries such as tech­no­logy and life sci­ences, began as start-ups. There are par­tic­u­lar­it­ies in the way they op­er­ate, but for suc­cess on the mar­ket it is ne­ces­sary to un­der­stand a few dos and don’ts.Monika Kek PhD, the CEO (and also the founder) of BluHeera AG, a Switzer­land based boutique con­sult­ing com­pany which provides pro­fes­sion­al ser­vices to the smal­ler but high-risk en­ter­prises, such as start-ups, and Saša Sodja, a highly ex­per­i­enced at­tor­ney-at-law at CMS Slov­e­nia with a tax back­ground, savvy in ad­vising start-ups as well cor­por­ates with cor­por­ate, com­mer­cial and tax leg­al chal­lenges, dis­sect the mis­takes start-ups make that hinder their de­vel­op­ment.Be­low you can watch the video of the epis­ode, listen to the pod­cast or read the tran­script!
