We aim to take a hands-on monitoring approach based on effective value addition. We pride ourselves on providing a helping hand to companies which in their early stages need managerial guidance as well as financial support.
We bring added value to our portfolio companies by:
Strengthening their managerial teams and aligning the interests of all shareholders with those of management.
Enhancing corporate governance, financial reporting, and transparency.
Leveraging our significant network of international partners and advisors
