We’re in it for the long haul

A LONG-TERM PARTNER

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.

AMBITION AND TRUST

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.

A LEAD INVESTOR

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

SUSTAINABLE GROWTH

We encourage a healthy scaling of the business, often investing in operations in advance of market demand, to build a strong and defensible competitive position that can stand the test of time.

THE IDEAL EXIT

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.

Strategic partnership

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.

Edtech & Corporate Learning

The way people learn has evolved drastically in recent years, making space for new disruptive models that appeal to young audiences.

From B2C personal development to B2B corporate training, we aspire to work with founders that will play a crucial role in educating future generations.

Mediatech

Technology now plays a crucial role in the relationship between brands and audiences.

From analytics platforms, to marketing automation to automated content generation, we invest in forward looking technologies that optimise the business relationship and customer experience for media brands and audiences.

Marketplaces

Mediahuis has a proven track record with marketplace models. Matching supply and demand is part of our expertise. Starting from this we like to work together with founders who want to conquer these markets in a fresh and disrupting way and covering additional aspects of these markets .

We specifically look for investments in real estate data solutions, recruitment marketing and job platforms — aimed at both fortifying and expanding our position.
