Strengthening EY’s digital capabilities
EY (USD 31bn revenues, 240k employees) acquired etventure to accelerate its own digital consultancy business in DACH and globally, and thus complement its excellent audit, tax, legal and management services for blue chip clients.
With EY as partner, with its vast global network and services, etventure will benefit from deeper resources and can tap into EY’s excellent and long-standing client relationships, and therefore accelerate and internationalise its organic growth.
The founders and sellers of etventure will remain as Partners of EY, highly committed to jointly build a global digital consultancy business.
