About Us


The Cyndx platform is the collaborative result of seasoned investment bankers, M&A specialists, data scientists, and product teams with decades of respective experience.


Since 2013, we have been challenging the traditional and standard templates of how market and investment research is done by creating the Cyndx platform that provides ourselves and our clients the most comprehensive search and discovery platform.


We believe knowledge is power and that all missed opportunities are lost opportunities. The manner and comprehensiveness with which you start your search is perhaps the most important phase of any search and ultimately shapes your outcome.


The Cyndx platform harnesses the power of semantic search which is driven by our proprietary predictive analytics engine. We make data smarter, so that it can work harder and more effective for you, which ultimately allow you to find the right investments or investors to satisfy your needs, every time.


The result?  To date, almost $1 Billion in transaction volume facilitated using the Cyndx platform and the fastest-growing community of the world’s top tier investment banks, VC firms, private equity firms and family offices who are already using Cyndx to launch their search for new opportunities.
