Angel Investments:

We also invest in companies in the seed or start-up stage in projects which are too small for Venture Capital investment. In this case, we primarily look at the management team and how quickly we can take the company to the first round investment stage.

 

Investment size: less than 300k USD

Real Estate Investments:

We also invest in real estate primarily in and around Budapest but also selectively in the entire Central Eastern European region. We are not sector specific in terms of real estate, we acquire and manage properties where we can add value through our unique approach, out-of-the-box strategy or network of partners. We have been involved in the acquisition of properties in the excess of 20 million EUR since 2008, and we have exited from most of these projects. All of these deals have been profitable and successful.
