Closing Circle Now Inviting Corporates to Join Its Growing Community of Investors

The Investment and M&A Social Network opens membership to M&A managers of companies with revenues of over 1 billion euros.

Paris, France, November 07, 2012 --( Closing Circle (, the largest European Investment and M&A Social Network, is now present in 18 countries and already facilitated several introductions and deals.

Opened on January 31 2012, Closing Circle has been building up an exclusive community of Financial Investors, with a combined investment capacity amounting to several tens of billions of euros, and is now inviting Corporate Investors, which will be a significant addition to the Circle.

"Our objective," says David Chouraqui, founder and CEO of Closing Circle, "is to bring together strategic and financial Investors to facilitate connections and dealmaking. Corporates are instrumental in M&A, growing through build up acquisitions or disposing of non-core assets. Many are keen to be part of the M&A community. On the other hand, private equity and venture capital firms are eager to connect with firms that can provide them with new investment opportunities and can be an obvious exit for their investments."

Corporate members will be joining a community that already connects the following categories of firms and professionals:
- Direct Investors: private equity, venture capital and family offices
- Indirect Investors: institutional investors, funds of funds
- Financial Advisors: M&A Advisors, fund placement firms and major stock exchanges
- Lenders: Bank debt providers
- Consultants: Due diligence service providers including financial, operational, legal and tax

Corporate members will be granted a discreet access to the platform and will be visible to the members they message or invite to connect on Closing Circle. They will be able to find resources and partners among investors, lenders, advisors and consultants and connect with them.

To join the platform, corporate members must be companies with revenues of over 1 billion euros and access to the platform will be limited to M&A professionals. Interested firms can apply for membership on as “Direct Investors” or contact

The platform is not yet open to smaller businesses but companies with financing and M&A needs and looking for investors, lenders, advisors and consultants can contact Closing Circle for support at
