We look for companies that are run by driven, ambitious and committed management teams that are experienced and knowledgeable in their marketplace.
Our companies will have already achieved impressive initial growth, but are now looking for support in taking the business to the next level. This is where we can help.
We are not in a hurry. We want to learn how the team manage issues and opportunities, how competitors behave, how customers perceive the product or service and how the business adjusts to growth, before we invest.
As an entrepreneur, we hope that you see us as your long-term, supportive partner. Our investment process is therefore as much about ensuring that we are the right fit for you, as you are for us. We believe that the best investments are those where we have open and productive relationships with our management teams.
