Investment focus

We target category champions in the French mid-market

We support companies with strong positions on sustainable markets, operating within 4 preferred sectors: Business services, Tech/Software, Healthcare & Education. We look for activities which provide a strong downside protection thanks to solid financials and strong recurrence. Then, alongside the Management teams, we aim to make companies change dimension through organic growth, platform and/or internationalization strategies.
