Sweepatic in strategic acquisition

Cresco acted as lead counsel to all shareholders and sellers of Sweepatic NV in the strategic acquisition by Outpost24.

Over the past years Cresco acted a strategic advisor to Sweepatic, its founders and management in the design and negotiation of several capital rounds with renowned institutional investors including ParticipatieMaatschappij Vlaanderen, eCAPITAL’s Cybersecurity and Technologies Funds and TIIN Capital’s Dutch Security Tech Fund, and assisted Sweepatic’s management in its key commercial contracts.

This long-standing collaboration is a testament to Cresco being a trusted advisor to founders and investors of technology ventures, and its expertise in assisting scaleups in their corporate and funding transactions, commercial contracting, IP monetization and exits.
