To help a company in a merging and/or the acquisition process, we help identify and approach potential business partners, through the implementation of effective « hunting » techniques.
Year after year, Acropolis built a strong international network at senior level of organizations. It has acquired important strategic industry data and information.
We focus on identification of precisely targeted potential partners, in China mainland, in Europe (especially France and Greece) and Canada (Quebec).
