Mission

Create long term value, accelerate growth, make a real difference to the companies we invest

Investment Approach

We are primarily focused on three core sectors: Food & Beverages, Technology and Tourism, while we are flexible to look at special situations and deep value opportunities outside those areas.

We provide capital and strategic resources and we work in partnership with management teams to help companies create value by improving their organizations, creating synergies, optimizing capital structures and expanding in new products and markets outside Greece.

We are flexible to invest in various types of transaction and/or co-invest with other investors that share the same values with us. Our mandate allow us to invest on different stages such as Expansion, Growth, Acquisition.

We typically take a minority shareholding, but a majority is also possible.
