Early-Stage companies often have outstanding business ideas. However, they are commonly confronted with the problem of having limited resources at their disposal. Paua Ventures fully supports start-ups through a proactive partnership that reaches far beyond mere capital injection. By taking individual care of our portfolio companies we lay the foundation for sustainable growth and long-term success. We thus developed a threefold model of value enhancement:
Paua Ventures provides capital to start-ups at an early stage of their existence. Participations are usually realized through equity capital.
We strongly believe in building pro-active partnerships with our portfolio companies in order to create sustainable value enhancement. We offer active support in day-to-day operational business decisions and help entrepreneurs set strategic milestones. We keep close contact to our partners to ensure start-ups use our networking resources efficiently. Moreover, we support our companies as sparring partners in negotiations – we don’t mind getting our hands dirty.
Our portfolio companies benefit from our international cross-industry network of investors, managers and entrepreneurs. It offers valuable synergy potential, chances for future expansion and renders access to capital for later rounds of funding.
