Early stage and expansion phase ventures globally
Products with global potential
We are pro-active investors and support the businesses we back long-term, usually as board members – always making sure we reserve sufficient capital for subsequent financing rounds. Robust businesses aren’t ready-made, so we work closely with our portfolio companies to build strong management teams, helping to define their strategies and create the building blocks of success.
Our investment businesses work with us because we go way beyond just providing capital for their growing business.
Our independent structure, investment experience and direct access to extensive strategic and research networks offer compelling advantages to an ambitious and growing business.
