Our specialty: investment
Family to Family
Until then limited to relatively traditional investment options (Private Equity, stock market, conventional investment funds in stocks and bonds, …), Family Businesses express more and more their desire to take control of their investment strategy. investing and realizing direct operations to the capital of innovative and growth companies, companies that make sense and respond to societal challenges (environment and sustainable development, personalized health, energy efficiency, education…).
We allow these families to invest in companies that match their aspirations, in pari-passu with other families, and in the wake of a lead investor, whether it is a family with its own management company and expertise in the relevant field, or an investment fund whose organization and investment criteria correspond to those acclaimed by the Families.
Beyond this upstream selection stage, our methodology has two other specificities:
– a thorough and written documentation of ALL steps of the discovery of a file by an investor,
– a transparent procedure from A to Z in the sense that the investor has a direct relationship with our Client and can access all the useful data that will allow him to qualify his intention.
In particular, we carry out managerial audits and courses of behavioral excellence.
Our courses are for leaders alone who need to sedate “sit down to think” with experienced counsel. They can also turn to management teams that seek to create – or recreate – unity around their development goals.
Given the significant increase in burnout situations among leaders and management teams, we chose to offer three-day mid-mountain sessions alternating interactive workshops and guided mountain hikes.
We also organize corporate meetings around a business project in which the entrepreneur and his management team present our investors with the main features of their business plan and answer questions.
