Our approach

We specialise in spotting promising sectors. Extensive data and market analyses are at the foundation of our way of working. Our sharp focus attracts entrepreneurs with vision and potential. We collaborate and help entrepreneurs to turn market opportunities into sustainable growth.

We enter into our partnerships based on trust and bring them to success with our commitment, energy and decisiveness.

The challenges differ per sector. Yet we work in roughly 3 phases with all our investments:

  • We select the focus sector based on extensive data and market analyses.
  • We create a platform company by forming partnerships with entrepreneurial teams and professionals.
  • We grow towards market leadership by acquiring companies in the sector, fine-tuning the commercial strategy, and implementing operational improvements.

Focus criteria

03 Economies of scale

04 Financially strong

05 Entrepreneurial
