WHAT WE DO
We invest in a better future
Our investments are focused on sustainable solutions to existing and emerging problems. We believe it is our responsibility to invest in ideas that can facilitate a more sustainable future and are aligned with the UN SDGs.
We invest in passion
We believe that entrepreneurs and start-ups with strong passion and ambition to change the world are more likely to grow and succeed. We therefore look for investment opportunities that incorporate this mindset where our resources can help create a more sustainable world.
We focus on sustainability
In our view, focusing on sustainability is vital for building long-term value. We therefore expect ESG and sustainability considerations to be key part of our portfolio companies’ governance. Assisting companies with identifying the most important ESG risks and opportunities in their business and helping them set up sound ESG practices in their operation is key in ensuring their long-term growth.
BUY AND BUILD
The core of our policy and all our RI activities is the “buy and build” philosophy. We are active owners that work closely with our portfolio companies for them to grow and become leaders in their selective industries.
This policy is moreover shaped by our core values; Long- term thinking; Courage; Endurance; and Integrity. These values are reflected our investment strategy and they guide our everyday practices.
