Amsterdam, October 18th , 2021 – Yenlo acquires Datacon in a move that sees both API- and Integration specialists increase market opportunities and leverage each other’s capabilities by joining forces. For Yenlo it is a move that further strengthens its growth strategy. For Datacon it is a move that helps the company reach bigger portfolio clients in untapped markets. The acquisition will commence in a gradual manner, with both organizations initially keeping to their separate services and operations. Datacon’s CEO and Co-Founder Meindert van Duijvenbode will be included in the Yenlo Group board of directors.
“This acquisition further fuels the ambition of Datacon to be a go-to multi-vendor API- and Integration specialist on an international scale. Though our current market impact is healthy and favourable towards that ambition, being included in the Yenlo Group boosts our ability to scale and gain access to new markets and client profiles. We are immensely proud of the journey Datacon has taken up until this point and are truly excited to be joining forces with Yenlo”Meindert van Duijvenbode, CEO & Co-Founder, Datacon

So, it is with great joy and gratitude that we announce this joining of forces that brings mutual benefit. Yenlo’s growth strategy is clear and the Datacon acquisition is exemplary of it. Expanding our API-, Integration and Identity Management expertise to further our aim on a market leading position in API- and Integration technology across West-Europe and North America.
