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
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.
As an expert in Central-Eastern Europe, GRW Invest believes, that the risk adjusted return of carefully selected investments in the region can significantly outperform the more developed economies as well as some other developing regions. GRW invests in these projects and manages them from the acquisition to the exit in order to create the maximum shareholder return.
GRW provides full range of investment management services for its investments: Sourcing, deal structuring, deal negotiations, due diligence, contractual negotiation, asset management, exit strategy planning, exit strategy implementation, financing, tax planning:
GRW usually invests in a joint venture structure, with partners that can add significant additional value to projects in addition to their equity contributions.
