ESPIRA Investments provides capital to high-potential SMEs and adds significant value in all facets of business growth beyond financing. We view ethical behaviour and respect for each company’s unique culture and value as core principles that underly our investment approach.
Our goal is to partner with entrepreneurs who have built something extraordinary and unique through their hard work – who have a passion for their product or service and an ambition to grow further. We have a deep respect for these entrepreneurs and view their continued leadership as a critical element of our strategy. Our role is to provide support on a strategic level and not to interfere with the everyday operations of the companies we finance.
Our team believes in the benefits of close cooperation and shared objectives; we work with the management team throughout the entire investment period to set goals, allocate resources, and resolve challenges. By aligning incentives across a company’s various stakeholders, it is easier to achieve the desired investment outcomes.
A key element of ESPIRA Investments’ philosophy is a focus on companies managed by balanced teams of both women and men. Our private equity fund recognises the potential of such companies, and our investors understand that diversity in decision-making and leadership leads to superior results.
