How do we work?
At BrightOrange, we work with small teams, allowing us to focus entirely on you and your business. Throughout the process, you will work with the same deal team of two or three employees. What sets BrightOrange apart is that a partner is always involved in your process. Curious about what such a process looks like? Below, we have outlined the 5 steps for you, so you can see if our personal approach suits you.
1 First contact
Before we meet in person, we will have a phone conversation to get an idea of your situation and how we can assist you. Then, we would like to invite you for an introduction meeting, either at your location or at one of our offices in Amsterdam, Utrecht, or Zwolle.
2 Introduction meeting
A business acquisition, business valuation, or mediation process often takes several months. During these months, we work closely together, which is why we think it is important to have a mutual connection. You will have an introduction meeting with the consultant(s) and partner who will work with you throughout the process. We will listen carefully to your situation and wishes and tell you more about ourselves and our working method. If we are a match, we will create a proposal and a plan for you.
3 Proposal and plan
Based on the introduction meeting, we will create a customized proposal that not only describes what we will do for you but also how we will do it. This will give you a clear picture of the process and what is involved. We will also send you a request for information, including the information and documents we need from you to complete the assignment. If you agree with the proposal and plan of action, we will start working for you. Because we work with small teams, we can often start quickly without a long waiting time.
Throughout the entire process, you will be dealing with the same consultant(s) and partner. They are available for you every day and you can easily reach them. We really see the process as a collaboration, where we exchange information and support you with all the difficult tasks. Thanks to our extensive network, we can easily collaborate with other specialists such as lawyers and tax advisors. We regularly meet to discuss the progress of the process, but also to catch up and socialize.
5 Long-term relationship
At BrightOrange, we focus on building long-term relationships. Even after the project is completed, we are happy to continue supporting you. You will become part of the warm BrightOrange network, for which we regularly organize fun activities. Every year, we have a BrightOrange event for our relations.

Peter Paul Buijsrogge
“My biggest motivation is that I want to help people. With my knowledge and experience, I help others but also learn myself, which in turn allows me to help others better. At BrightOrange, we work with professional, driven and experienced people. With a no-nonsense attitude and a good dose of humour.”
Fond of water sports and chess.
“Many entrepreneurs see their business as a ‘life’s work’. Making the decision to sell it, they often only take it once or twice. I really enjoy guiding these entrepreneurs through this process. I really enjoy the variety of assignments, businesses and entrepreneurs we help. And especially the combination of the financial and human aspect.”
Footballer and amateur chef
“I love working with passionate entrepreneurs to achieve the optimal result. It gives me energy to assist them in this important and emotional process. At BrightOrange, we work with a fine team of professionals, in which we complement each other well. In addition, I get the space to apply my interests and qualities on a daily basis when assisting the transactions.”
Likes to paddle and plays music at parties.
“I love explaining complex issues to our customers in a clear, informative and fun way. Through our articles, animation videos and other marketing communications. I love the variety in my work. It is also a nice team with experienced, open and honest people.”
Avid board game player and amateur chef
“I love helping entrepreneurs with various business issues. You notice that you become in-house counsel and are therefore seen as a sparring partner. Working at Bright Orange is incredibly fun: you are challenged to make good numerical analyses and draw conclusions from them.”
Fanatical footballer on the pitch and in the hall.
“I strive to achieve an optimal result in every transaction, taking into account the legitimate interests of all parties involved. Moreover, I find it important to be able to work together at a high level in a team with driven professionals. Within BrightOrange, this ambition comes to the fore optimally.”
