Our philosophy


Our business partners are vital to our success – and vice versa.

We look for ambitious entrepreneurs who have a clear growth perspective and see the benefit of allying with a private equity investor, to create partnerships based on trust, mutual respect, transparency and aligned interests. You and your management team remain in charge of the company’s daily operations, while we actively support you to define your company’s strategy, organisation, finance and governance, with the ultimate goal of shaping an even better company.


Our investments are founded on the belief that the future starts today.

With every partnership, we start from the company’s current recipe for success and investigate ways to strengthen it. This includes continuous improvement, by doing the same thing in a better way and innovation, by trying something new. We believe in the importance of setting clear business objectives with our partners to measure existing efforts, learn from them and adjust for the future.

Sustainable business

Long-term value, not short-term returns.

We are on the edge of a fundamental reshaping of finance. Sustainable investment opportunities will ensure the strongest foundation for outstanding returns in the long term. This means that instead of focusing on short-term returns, we create long-lasting value for all stakeholders: shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers, society and the environment.

Our investment strategy

Our interests guide us towards successful companies that are active in sectors and niche markets that can benefit from contemporary trends (e.g., digitalisation, industry 4.0, sustainability). Our investment strategy involves:

  • Equity ticket between €2m and €10m
  • EBITDA ranging from €1m to €8m
  • Minority or majority stake
  • Growth capital, replacement capital, management buy-in or buy-out, owner buy-out
  • Long-term investment perspective with a 5-10 year plan and a smooth, constructive, and natural exit
  • Companies located in Benelux

Our beliefs

We believe in:

  • Taking a long-term view on our investments, looking to create and establish sustainable value creation
  • Working collaboratively with our partners to build and execute their ambitious strategic growth plan
  • Acting as an active shareholder, supporting our partners as they manage the company on a daily basis
  • Sharing the best practices from our current and former portfolio companies and introducing our partners to our extensive professional network
  • Building close partnerships based on mutual respect, trust and empathy
