Providing Financial and Strategic Advice to Emerging Companies
Creating Value for Our Clients
Formed in 2009, our initial focus was on direct investments in European start-ups where the investee could benefit from the experience and expertise of our team.
Where the client’s business plans required additional capital, we approach additional potential partners and investors on our client’s behalf.
Our two key differentiating factors are the particular expertise of our team and our focus on building links between innovation=focused European and Asia investors and companies.
