My motto has always been: working together with an investment firm, never! The first conversation with HC partners was therefore very simple, no I’m not going to work with you, but you’re here, so please tell me… And then it turned out that our ideas about the future might had more overlap than they did with other investors. Right then I started to seriously consider building a future together. Combining my paramedical knowledge and their knowledge on entrepreneurship, building a strong sustainable paramedical care leader. Bring it on!
The fact that they are also pleasant people to deal with, with whom you can drink a proper glass of wine is a nice bonus and has its appeal.
In January 2018 I got to know HC partners when I was looking for a financial partner to help build a market leader in the physiotherapy space. What immediately appealed to me was there entrepreneurial and hands-on approach and view on this consolidation adventure. Together with several entrepreneurial physiotherapists we started Fysiogroep Nederland. Just after four years we have grown to become the market leader with over 100 locations and 750 FTE. During this whole period, we have worked extensively alongside HC partners and they have been of tremendous help (as well on the operational side of the business). I have experienced them as team players who value the social aspects of entrepreneurship as highly important. With FGN having matured HC Partners switched more to being a constructive sparring partner in their role as majority shareholder and ensure that they are always involved on important strategic issues
