Focussing on the European technology space, Concentric invests between €0.5 - 5m over the life of an early-stage growth company. As managers we are substantially invested in the partnership and are therefore incentivised to be pro-active, resourceful and hands-on. We don’t have all the answers but take pride in being able to support like-minded entrepreneurs, whose ambitions, ideas and integrity we identify with.
Over our collective investment lives we have strategically shifted portfolio focus a number of times, though one factor remains universally important - people. We work with entrepreneurs that work with us as partners, who are open and upfront, who are there for the long term and don’t over-promise. We firmly believe it is not always the smartest who win but those that persevere.
We are hands-on investors that like to be ‘present’ and contribute to the strategic direction of the businesses we partner with. Our belief is that only through open, honest, regular dialogue can you truly see potential weak points, or equally, identify unseen strengths and opportunities. This synergetic approach to early stage development enables the discovery of agreed ways to grow sustainably.
