Scholarship Contest from Dealroom

Who We Are

DealRoom is a financial technology company providing modern virtual data rooms and process management solutions to complex financial transactions.

The idea for DealRoom began in a small office in downtown Chicago in 2012. Our founder, Kison, was running a boutique M&A practice that focused on hospitality. He realized the standard technology available for M&A created inefficiencies such as work silos, duplicate works, and version control issues. He knew there had to be a better way and that the M&A industry desperately needed project management.
