“We have discovered an investment partner who is very deeply involved in our strategic reflections and who strongly contributes to the integration of our mission at the heart of our company’s project.”
Growing companies through the lenses of a strong and inclusive “why” is more than a start. It’s a head start to solve most issues that founders experience building long-lasting companies that shape a fair and sustainable future.
It is both exciting and fulfilling to have the chance to meet and support entrepreneurs who want to build a better future for people and the planet. I am convinced that this is also the best way to create sustainable economic value.
