Building for Growth
Private Equity Partnerships
Entrepreneurs first. Whether we participate in larger companies already operating a viable business (growth equity) or scalable smaller ventures showing high potential, we always dive in deep. Our approach can be classified as hands-on active management and we operate alongside the existing founder team.
We have a strong preference for companies that are tech related and highly scalable. However, when the opportunity fits our investment views, more traditional companies are also welcome to join our portfolio. By optimizing current processes and unlocking value we are set for growth.
If a possible investment opportunity matches our strategic interest we have multiple options to participate. Currently we focus on growth opportunities in the VC field (or more specific growth equity), a subsection of Private Equity. Participations can either be added to Qapital Venture Partners or, in the case of digital media related ventures, to our subsidiairy ICONS Digital Group (ICONS.Ventures). We run labels as ICONS Media, Dutch Media Factory, RocketPress, CoolMobile and more. Whereas Qapital Venture Partners has a more diversified strategy, ICONS Digital Group has a portfolio focus and is looking to acquire and build digital (service) companies to act as a technology investor.
