Our focus

Building a diverse, inclusive and international work culture

Supporting management teams of our portfolio companies in accelerating growth depends almost entirely on the performance of its people.
More companies are seeing that diverse and inclusive teams have the best access to talent, operate more effectively and inspire employees to perform their best.

We consider it our duty and responsibility to promote diversity, inclusion and equality within our portfolio companies, as well as help to create a happy, secure and integral workplace.
