Our mission is to raise and protect every company's potential
We are a SaaS Platform with products used by the world’s top companies, advisors and governments to govern their most crucial information and processes in Deals and Transaction Management, Board Management, Compliance and Procurement.
Since 2005, we've accumulated over fifteen years of experience on 24,000+ critical deals.
With over $1 trillion in deal value transacted on our platform.
We develop technology to solve the problems and frustrations caused by legacy tools, processes, and ways of thinking.
In 2005, Andrew, a software developer, and two accountants (Rachel and Daphne) involved in an M&A deal found themselves frustrated by the lack of virtual data room options available to them. They joined forces with an enigmatic entrepreneur (Sam) and set out on a mission to make life easier for dealmakers and business leaders the world around. They developed a simple, intuitive data room software to help advisors and companies succeed in deals seamlessly.
Our name is the first two letters of each founder's name - An Sa Ra Da.
That was just the beginning.
We started by looking closely at our data and identifying what really mattered – the critical information that drives a business, including assets, contracts, customers, financials, IT, legal, strategy… all of it.
We then worked backwards from thousands of outcomes and patterns in data to classify into specific Workflows - digitized checklist templates you can use to structure your most important data and work toward an outcome, built off 23,000+ previous transactions.
It’s the difference between having to draw your own picture, rather than simply colouring within the lines.
Since those early days, Ansarada has grown significantly, now comprising global offices in Sydney, London, Amsterdam, Johannesburg and Chicago. Our secret to success lies in anticipating the future needs of the industry and meeting those needs through innovation. We developed the world's first AI tools for deals and established our information governance platform, complete with proven workflows to get companies ready for critical business outcomes.
Governing information across your company's lifecycle
