There are more than 40 Aggregators - which one is the best fit?
Indeed, it is very difficult for a 1st or 2nd time seller to navigate through all those Aggregators. The right fit depends on the Aggregators focus, operating capabilities, closure rate and their ability to deliver on the earn-out. We know them all and will help you to choose the right partner that fits best to your business and expectations.
Which Aggregator are participating in The Bridge?

Aggregators, but also strategic investors (such as Privat Equity Firms and Corporates) are frequently acquiring strong D2C Brands. Hence, we also love to have D2C Brands on stage pitching their business at The Bridge.
What is FPA (Fair Playing Aggregator)?
Fair Playing Aggregator is the code of conduct of The Bridge that participating Aggregators have to comply with. In summary it says that we aim for 1) An excellent experience for Sellers throughout their exit, 2) Fair competition amongst Aggregators, 3) Fair, Fast and professional closing.
