Arnhem, 15-06-2022 – Kentaa, market leader and expert in online fundraising in the Netherlands, has become part of the iRaiser Group, the largest European provider of digital services to non-profits, as of 8 June 2022. The companies join forces to strengthen their position in the European market and to help even more non-profit organisations successfully fundraise.

European ambitions: 'Helping as many charities as possible with online fundraising'
Over the past eight years, Kentaa has grown from a start-up to a market leader in peer-to-peer fundraising and crowdfunding in the Netherlands. Since 2018, Kentaa has also embarked on the course towards internationalisation, preparing its products for European roll-out and acquiring customers in Belgium, Germany and Scandinavia. The acquisition by iRaiser Group is another important step towards realising Kentaa's international ambitions together.

For iRaiser, the quality of the Kentaa products, the strong position in the Dutch market and the international potential are decisive factors for this step. The continuation and further growth of Kentaa is therefore a common goal.

"We are excited to expand our community of fundraising experts through the acquisition of Kentaa. In the coming months, we will all focus on our common mission: empowering world changers. Therefore, no major operational changes will be made," said Emmanuel Chaumeau, Chief Executive Officer of iRaiser Group.

Kentaa continues unchanged
The company and brand Kentaa will continue to exist. The day-to-day operations, the management, the Kentaa team, its platforms and service also remain the same. The organisation continues unabated with the further development and innovation of the Kentaa platforms.

Exchange of knowledge and products
The joining of forces between Kentaa and the iRaiser Group is aimed at serving both Kentaa and iRaiser customers even better. Marc Schoutens, Managing Director at Kentaa: "We are happy to be part of the iRaiser family. Being part of a dedicated group that shares our values and mission was key and a great opportunity for Kentaa. In the coming months, we look forward to discover how our complementary services and products can reinforce each other. With our joint knowledge, we hope to be able to offer a wider range of innovative solutions that facilitate the hard work of fundraisers in Europe."
