We help inspired entrepreneurs and enterprising management teams to bring their dreams and goals to life. We started working at our kitchen table in 2007. Now, we have grown into a strong collective of professionals with solid financial and operational business experience. We help companies become successful on a scale much bigger than they ever imagined.
We focus on established, medium-sized and profitable companies in the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark and Germany with clear growth opportunities, such as organic growth, international expansion and buy-and-build. We like to team up with unique entrepreneurs and enterprising managers to jointly realize ambitious growth plans. With our companies, we seek an active approach that is based on true entrepreneurship, growth acceleration and transformation, and is spurred by the human factor and sustainability.
With over 25 (international) transactions every year, we have a strong track record in market consolidations and operational transformations. Our focus is on companies with EBITDA of €2 to €20 million.
We believe in the strength of people and collaboration. Our people are all specialists with a great deal of ambition and knowledge, years of experience, and a highly enterprising attitude. The team is diverse and has developed a healthy and thriving team spirit, in which everyone is valued. That is the way for us to achieve durable success.
