To build buyer and seller relationships and update its database daily, Corum has invested in the world's most extensive Tech M&A educational program with over 200 events annually. These are done in partnership with international and regional tech associations, major law and accounting firms, leading technology and private equity firms, and the World Financial Symposiums (wfs.com) whose mission is "Educating Technology Leaders". Corum's flagship event for C-level executives, owners, investors and buyers is a half-day conference, "Selling Up Selling Out". It is the most attended executive IT conference in history, running weekly for the past 30 years. "Merge Briefing", "Tech M&A Monthly Webcast", "M&A Market Spotlight" and "Growth and Exit Strategies" are some of the other events Corum either conducts directly, or as a primary sponsor.
The firm's "Global Tech M&A Annual Report" on 30 market sectors presented with world tech leaders/buyers/investors/futurists, Monthly and Quarterly M&A updates, and Corum's "Top Ten Disruptive Technology Trends" are among the industry’s most respected research. They are produced by the firm's three research centers, supported by the company's 400 member advisory board - The World Technology Council (WTC).
Corum's 8 Step "Optimum Outcome" process utilizes a unique team approach to best prepare clients so that they aren't a victim of today's tougher due diligence. The process leaves no stone unturned in a global partner search to the new generation of buyers. The result of the investment in process, education, utilizing more experienced team leaders, and proprietary buyer knowledgebase is the successful sale of more privately held software and related technology companies than any Tech M&A firm in history.
