Our Strategy

We aim to support people who share our entrepreneurial mindset and have a uniquely brilliant idea.

We win when we invest in sectors we properly understand, and ideally, those in which we have a competitive advantage. Here, we can seize opportunities that only we are aware of.  We look at investments which others, for whatever reason, do not consider interesting. As a team, we work to understand them and uncover their full potential.

We are exceptionally positioned to seize opportunities as they arise, especially at the illiquid, less efficient and smaller end of investment.

We are also truly flexible in how we structure investments. We sit down and find solutions, because there's always a solution if there's a willingness to be creative.

Our investment process is rigorous.  We leave no stone unturned; working in close collaboration with management teams to fulfil the business potential, in any given environment.
