Following a long period on the pay-roll of top tier Private Equity/Venture Capital firms Stephan Bülow has been running his own business for more than a decade. He has always been acting as a “deal maker” who offers integrated management consulting and corporate finance services of facilitate shareholder changes in the best possible way. In this role Stephan has been advising both investors and owners and has already managed to close deals worth more than €2 bn.
His major fields of expertise are capital raising, portfolio assessments, M&A, commercial due diligence, buy-and-build and post-merger integration.
His long experience in the financial environment includes IPOs as well as the whole spectrum of non-public investments (from mezzanine to buy-outs, MBOs/MBIs, turnarounds and growth capital). In recent years, Stephan has increasingly turned to new digital business models and successfully implemented capital measures for HR Tech, Entertainment as a Service, Collaborative Management Solutions and various SaaS companies.
In addition, he has operational experience as a managing director, active advisory board member and consultant in initiating and, in particular, implementing buy-and-build strategies to consolidate fragmented markets.

As a balance to everyday life, I am an enthusiastic athlete, coming from triathlon and tennis and have also been very active in functional fitness for years.Let’s talk
Initiating and implementing shareholder changes is a major challenge, be it in the search for a new financier, the spin-off from a company or the sale of one’s life’s work. You have to be able to listen, speak, write and calculate well to be of real help. The different constellations excite me anew every day.
