We’re in it for the long haul


If you need multiple investment rounds to support your sky-high ambitions, we have the investment capacity to support you. Once we invest, we support your growth to market leadership.


A shared ambition and belief in the founder’s ability are the cornerstones of our investment decisions. Once we’re in, we take a hands-off yet supportive management stance, giving you the resources and independence you need to succeed.


We double down on what we believe in. That’s why we prefer a lead investor role and aspire a path to a majority stake in all our investments, without ever compromising what is best for the future of your company.


We encourage healthy scaling without compromising business longevity, helping you build a foundation that canst and the test of time.


We work with you to achieve the exit that balances the needs of all investors and shareholders and that works best for the sustainability of your business. We may choose to remain as a majority shareholder, or exit, and are guided by our commitment to the best choice for the business.

Investment Thesis

Our investment thesis is laser-focussed. We understand the market and are very specific about the companies and sectors we support. Partnering with us gives you access to all industry knowledge at our disposal.

Education Technologies

The education industry has been slow to adapt, and the gap between what schools are teaching compared to what employers want is growing. EdTech can close that gap by facilitating learning providing valuable skills to students. The world is changing, and education needs to change with it.

Human Resources Technology

The future of work is now! Remote work, rise of gig economy and automation is disrupting the way people work. From onboarding, employee engagement and payroll to L&D and employee wellbeing, we invest in the entrepreneurs that help companies invest in their people.
