Welcome at Marktlink

Entrepreneurship is at the core of everything we do, with the primary goal of creating value for entrepreneurs. By combining our data-driven approach with the large team [RL1] of engaged professionals, we are uniquely positioned to assist you in the next step of your career.

About Marktlink

Since 1996, Marktlink has been advising entrepreneurs on the sale or acquisition of SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises). We have grown to become one of the largest specialists in acquisitions, with offices spread across various locations in Europe. This not only makes Marktlink locally visible but also enables us to easily connect businesses through our international network. Within this network and our community, we connect active entrepreneurs, provide access to financing and investment opportunities and encourage growth and entrepreneurship. We believe in building long-term relationships with entrepreneurs and being genuinely interested in their ambitions. This personal approach, combined with unique online tools and the latest technologies, allows us to thoroughly understand the market dynamics.

In every phase of the entrepreneurial cycle, we stand by entrepreneurs — whether you want to grow further, exit, build or invest. Since 2020, Marktlink Capital has been providing entrepreneurs and private investors with access to leading private equity and venture capital funds. This allows you to strategically manage your assets and invest in a stable future.

All of this makes Marktlink the number one advisor, no matter which phase of entrepreneurship you find yourself in.

History

How it began

In 1996, Koos Jager and Alfred van Wincoop founded Marktlink. Their first office? A farmhouse in Rhenen. In 2000, Ferry Nahon joined the duo, and two years later, Tim van der Meer and Tom Beltman joined as consultants. Over the years, the three men progressed to become managing partners.

2006-2015

In the 10th anniversary year, Marktlink opened its first office in the East of Netherlands, a celebratory moment for the 15 employees. In the following years, three more offices were added in the West and South of the Netherlands.

2016-2019

Marktlink experienced rapid growth by opening its fifth office, this time in the North of the Netherlands. We also crossed borders with an office in Antwerp. Our success was acknowledged with a top position in the ranking of M&A Advisory Firms in the Benelux region.

2020

Significant expansion on multiple fronts: the first German office in Düsseldorf, the team reached the milestone of 100 employees and Marktlink Investment Partners (now: Marktlink Capital) was established. With the launch of Fund I, we provide private investors access to leading private equity funds.

2021-present

Our growth ambitions took better shape with new offices in Denmark, Germany, the United Kingdom and Switzerland. We celebrated our 25th anniversary, welcomed our 200th colleague and built a wonderful community. We expanded our service offerings to include guidance in optimising the our sell-side mandates. Marktlink Investment Partners evolved into Marktlink Capital.
