About
Collaboration Art

Together with Europe’s most passionate entrepreneurs we are building a House of Brands for performance marketing companies. We acquire successful SEM / SEO / Social Media agencies and help them evolve to further greatness. We utilize the power and knowledge that exists in entrepreneurial organizations, and add competitive advantages from being one of Europe’s largest media buyers.

Our entrepreneurs run their businesses under their own brand and with their unique corporate culture, while the group provides support and opportunities to develop in areas that often are challenging for independent actors.

As founders of Collaboration Art we are strong believers in the power of entrepreneurship. The management team has for the last 20 years built a broad experience from running companies in the Digital space. We have seen how power and energy from entrepreneurs create value. We have also seen how this energy can be lost if integrated in a larger context the wrong way. Our job is to make sure that the entrepreneurial freedom and energy remains but fueled with benefits of being a larger player.

Looking forward telling you more
