What is your investment process and how long does it take?

We know how distracting a fundraising process can be at an early stage. That’s why we commit to being fast and decisive. What is truly important to us is building a relationship with the founding team. We start with an initial meeting or call. Most processes end there. But, if not, there is usually a second or third meeting or call with different members of our investment team. It is almost certain that you will have met or spoken with a large part of the investment team once we make the final investment decision. All of our investment team meet the founding team along the process.

How do you support your portfolio companies?

Honestly, ask founders of our portfolio companies. We have an established global network of the top tier teams, clubs and federations. Our team works to introduce our portfolio companies to the biggest clients across US, Europe, Middle East, and Asia. We don't just invest our capital, we invest our knowledge, time and effort to grow our companies.
