We add value to your portfolio

Building Bridges for Portfolio Value

Investors want to build successful portfolios, and being successful means creating value growth and realizing exit returns. Therefore, investors need to seek any potential for their portfolio company to grow revenue domestically and to enter new markets.

In this regard, internationalization of portfolio companies is…


International scale-up is restricted for many investors because of
 its complexity, cost, and long-term benefits that often don't fit the planned investment horizon.

…a great chance

Scaling up portfolio companies internationally not only creates additional revenue. There is also an exit premium on companies that 
show successful international market coverage.

We scale the potential of portfolio companies

for VC and PE investors in the center of Europe.
