In the closed community of investment banking, which primarily thrives on personal connections, large corporate entities are being served by the bulge bracket investment banks whereas boutiques cater to mid-market deals. Unfortunately, the extensive and vibrant Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) community has long been ignored by the traditional investment banking industry world over, blaming their ability to afford the expensive fees.
With 460 million SMEs in the world prioritizing access to finance as their top need, it was too big a market to be ignored and that's why SMERGERS was born. SMERGERS plays the role of a matchmaker between interested investors/buyers, business owners and M&A advisors, allowing them to interact directly with each other, and then helping close deals by providing full-range ancillary services, including valuation, collateral preparation, due diligence, legal documentation and so on. Business owners, Entrepreneurs, CEOs, Investors, Acquirers, Business Buyers, Lenders and Financial Advisors from different parts of the world discover each other and connect almost instantly to pursue financial transactions on our platform.
Be it a small family business or a larger established unit, SMERGERS has access to the right network of members to help close successful transactions. Our platform automates deal origination, valuation, matching and introduction of businesses and investors across the globe. Over the last decade, thousands of members have accessed investment banking services such as Mergers and Acquisitions, Fund Raising, Joint Ventures & Debt transactions with the click of a button on our platform. But we have a long way to go in making a significant positive difference to the SME segment. Our Vision is to make Mergers & Acquisitions, a well-established strategic instrument traditionally leveraged by large corporate companies, directly accessible to SMEs.

SMERGERS partners with IIT Kharagpur Entrepreneurship Cell's Flagship program GES 2023 as a major sponsor
Global Entrepreneurship Summit GES 2023 is IIT Kharagpur E-Cell’s annual flagship initiative. It is one of the biggest inter-collegiate corporate summits in India. It is a unique platform where industry doyens share their insights based on their experiences and entrepreneurial journey. GES is a confluence of aspiring entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors, new-age entrepreneurs, industry experts, academicians, and students. SMERGERS is proud to partner with IIT Kharagpur as a Major Sponsor for this event.
Our vibrant MSMEs form the backbone of our economy contributing 30% of our GDP and 50% of our exports. They employ more than 12 crore people in the country and create new jobs every year. MSMEs undoubtedly play a huge role in generating prosperity for any nation. It is vital that this sector is nurtured and supported by the government, especially during these difficult times. While MSMEs have always had some burning issues in India, the year that went by was a roller-coaster ride that still offered a ray of hope. Union budget 2022 scheduled on February 1 could be the right time to build on this hope by ushering in the changes required to help MSMEs.
At SMERGERS, an investment banking platform, we work with thousands of small business owners and here's a list of common requests we hear from them.
