About us

Who are we?

Transferring a business is a key process that requires months, if not years, of planning. For a business owner, the stakes involved in a successful transfer are human, financial, technical, fiscal and even psychological.

Prolinks Partner plays a dual role in its assignments: it acts as an M&A advisor, specialising in the transfer process, from the preparation of the file to the conclusion of the sale contract. It supports the owner in his professional and personal reflections and defines with him the objectives of the operation.

As a strategic advisor, Prolinks supports its clients in the pre-sales phase by identifying areas for improvement and implementing a transformation process to create value.

Our team

The Prolinks team is made up of professionals in the sale of technology companies, with both experience as owners who have sold their companies and knowledge of the issues involved in selling companies.
