Solid M&A and Investment advice from Cimtari

Rick Bawcum of Cimtrai posted some excellent advice on how association technology execs should be preparing themselves for the inevitable continuing consolidation that we’ve been experiencing for the past few years. Some good analysis too, from someone who has a lot of experience in the technology sector, including in financial services.¬†Check out the blog post.

Visualization of M&A and investment activity since July 2016

I thought readers of theNIRD would appreciate this visualization of the consolidation and investments that have taken place in the not-for-profit technology market since last year. These investments represent at least $700,000,000, and only the deals I have been able to learn of. For clarity, the boxes with multiple company logos in them represent mergers, acquisitions, and consolidations. The boxes with a single logo in them represent an investment (either venture capital or private equity).

This image is taken from a slide deck for a 30 minute orgCommunity webinar I’m giving tomorrow (Thursday, July 13, 2017). Register now to participate in the full presentation.
