January 17, 2024 | Press Release

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – January 17, 2024 – Datasite®, a leading SaaS-based technology provider for global mergers and acquisitions (M&A) professionals, has won a 2024 Business Intelligence Group (BIG) Innovation Award for its platform of applications supporting the entire dealmaking lifecycle, and received a silver from the 11th annual Best in Biz Awards International.

Datasite was recognized by the BIG Innovation Awards for Datasite Cloud™, the company’s purpose-built platform that manages every stage of the dealmaking process, including pipeline management, asset marketing, sell-side and buy-side due diligence, and post-merger integration. Datasite Cloud allows dealmakers to source their next opportunity, move through due diligence, close their deal and secure their data for future transactions all in one place.

Best in Biz International recognized Datasite in the Enterprise Product of the Year – Financial Services category, highlighting the company’s use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to automate many of the more time consuming and mundane tasks in the M&A management process.

“Dealmakers around the world need tools that can support all facets of M&A processes at a rapid pace,” said Doug Cullen, Chief Product and Strategy Officer at Datasite. “These awards are a testament to our global teams’ dedication to providing one singular platform where dealmakers can easily use the most advanced technologies to streamline their daily dealmaking operations.”

The BIG Innovation Awards recognize those organizations and people who bring new ideas to life. Whether that idea is big or small, these ideas change the way we experience the world. Organizations from across the globe submitted their recent innovations for consideration in the BIG Innovation Awards. Nominations were then judged by a select group of business leaders and executives who volunteer their time and expertise to score submissions.

Best in Biz Awards International is the only independent global business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications from around the world.

Dealmakers in more than 180 countries make their deals in Datasite, including 74 of the top 100 legal firms and all the top 20 global financial advisory firms. In 2022, the company facilitated a quarter of the top 100 global deals.
