Investment in digital technologies drives economic growth in the connected 21st century. Entrepreneurs need more than access to capital to scale and grow. As a technology company, we therefore invest in companies that are a strategic fit with our core businesses and add value for the entire Group. We focus on acquiring technology companies from the scaling phase to mid-market operations as part of our Buy&Build approach. The entry point for us usually results from business transfers, business successions, insolvencies, management buyouts and outsourcing joint ventures with corporates.
We engage with companies whose business model has sustainable value creation potential. Preferably scalable business models with a strong focus on innovation and technology. We select all those projects where our entrepreneurial know-how, our experience in the field of mergers & acquisitions, our resources and our entire ecosystem generate strong added value.
In contrast to pure financial investors, capital is not the main focus. Personality, spirit and openness of the entrepreneur for strategy development in partnership is just as important as the willingness to enter into a close entrepreneurial partnership with EOSS – as a majority shareholder in most cases.
