Value creation in venture, growth and buy-out

“Doing a deal” is an exciting process, but it is not actually our primary goal. The challenge begins afterwards. What really matters to us is offering true added value and getting a company to grow side by side with the management.

Investor with a sharp vision on technology

“Holland Capital played a crucial role in the development and execution of QSight IT’s buy-and-build strategy, which led to strong growth figures and a successful exit.” – Martijn Hakstege, voormalig CEO QSight IT.

Professional, engaged and experts in healthcare

“It was a pleasure working with Holland Capital. They are professional, engaged and experts in healthcare. They helped us get our affairs in order, and from there on, accelerated our growth through acquisitions.” – Marc Rooker, RDW Tandartsen.

Active (hands-on) support

Our approach is based on three main pillars:

Value creation:

Holland Capital focuses on creating significant value growth within the companies in which it invests. As an active shareholder, we are closely involved with the development of the company. In collaboration with the company’s management, we draw up plans for strategic development and operational improvements. The implementation of these plans and their adjustment is always done with the aim of value growth in mind.

Partnerships:

We build long-term relationships with entrepreneurs and the managers of the companies in which we invest. Holland Capital speaks the language of entrepreneurs and is a valued partner. By being transparent about objectives and expectations, we strive to align our objectives and those of the company’s management. These partnerships are based on mutual trust and respect and focus on the joint development of a successful business.

 

Network and experience:

At Holland Capital, we find it essential to be familiar with the market in which the company operates. We develop a clear and thorough insight into the developments within the market so that we can act as a true sparring partner and assist the management team in the decision-making process. From 1981 onwards, we have built up a broad network that largely consists of people with extensive business experience in specific sectors, who have experienced the diverse challenges of a growing company.

 

 

Investment criteria

We are constantly looking for promising Dutch companies operating in the Healthcare and Technology sectors. We focus on companies that excel through strong management, a distinctive market position and significant growth potential. As an involved investor, we provide growth capital and also use our network and knowledge to help businesses realize growth opportunities.
