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. 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.
DealRoom is a technology startup seeking to improve the finance industry, creating more collaborative, people-driven and efficient processes. This scholarship program is focused on students who are aspiring entrepreneurs and finance professionals. DealRoom encourages all students to apply and rewards diverse backgrounds.
One lucky student will be awarded $500 to go towards their college education.
The aim of the contest is finding creative students ready to move forward and look for innovative solutions in business, m&a, and virtual data room industry. In addition to winning to the tune of 500 dollars, we will consider the winner as our employee/colleague if he shows such a desire.
