Concentric backs entrepreneurs that are using software to solve real problems in traditional industries.
An important part of our investment thesis is building close relationships with portfolio entrepreneurs and supporting them on their growth journey – we call it Activist Ventures. Support comes in the shape of business development, governance support, recruiting issues, best practice reporting, M&A assistance etc. We also take board seats in most investments.
We are of the belief that you cannot be an early-stage venture investor if you are ‘hands off’. Whatever the situation is, whether there are problem scenarios or if the company is going through fast growth – we like to be able to assist and contribute towards the growth journey of the company and entrepreneur. We believe that effective collaboration between entrepreneur and investor can be exchanged into faster growth and higher enterprise value, building value for all stakeholders.
