As a diversification from Fashion and Real Estate the Group started investing in other companies via Private Equity and Venture Capital funds. Since just after the turn of the millenium our consecutive Investments have helped start and grow businesses. Today the portfolio of Investments present a valuable third activity within the Group.
We invest both in professional funds as well as directly in companies. For these direct investments we seek out enterprises in the Tech-industry, in particular in general IT, FinTech en EdTech (Educational Technology). The activities of some companies are complementary. Others follow another cyclical path, thus securing Cool Investments a proper business spread.
In addition to an injection of financial means we support our medium and small businesses partners also in other ways. Whether it be with practical HR, legal or administrative matters, managerial guidance or via our vast network. In all cases we aim for a fruitful long term partnership.
