Finance your acquisition up to € 1.000.000 with Knab Crowdfunding

As an entrepreneur who is planning to do an acquisition, you often need additional financing. The Dutch Professional Association of Merger & Acquisition Specialists (BOBB), of which the advisors of BenderBrandwijk & Partners B.V. are members, recently started a collaboration with Knab Crowdfunding. Knab Crowdfunding brings entrepreneurs together with Knab clients who like to participate in your funding.

  • Knab always participates in the funding with 10% their selves
