Corum Top Ten Disruptive Technology Trends 2017

Technology companies considering an exit cannot ignore the disruptive technologies changing lives and transforming markets. Even the largest firms must adapt to these trends or fall behind. No company has the foresight to always lead the innovation curve, so the most successful acquire the pioneering companies with the expertise to help them continue that disruptive success.

Each year, Corum composes a list of the key trends driving tech M&A, drawn from transactions in every sector, spanning hundreds of events, global reports and information from conversations with all of the buyers. 2017 has produced a particularly instructive set, described below.

quotesWhen we first went to market, Corum, with their experience and offices all over the world, spent time with us going through who the potential partners could be. And, frankly they were everywhere. The tech headlines can just as easily be out of England, Germany, France, Finland, Korea, China or North America. Some of the biggest and fastest growing firms in the tech world are not in the U.S. so we felt it imperative to do a truly global buyer search. We’re glad we did. quotes
