Investment strategy

Actively investing in growth of SMEs in Healthcare and Technology

 

Holland Capital is one of the first independent private equity firms in the Netherlands. We have been successfully and responsibly investing in promising small and medium-sized Dutch businesses with growth ambitions for more than 30 years. With a clear investment strategy, we anticipate long-term trends in attractive growth markets, focusing on the Healthcare and Technology sectors.

In recent years we have invested in more than 140 participations. Currently we have EUR 100m under management. Our funds come primarily from experienced entrepreneurs from the Healthcare and Technology sectors, as well as family offices and institutional investors.

 

Focus on Healthcare & Technology

Growth & buy-out capital

Active (hands-on) support

Holland Capital invests in 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 realise growth opportunities.

Our focus is on growth and buy-out financing, where a company has attractive growth opportunities, but needs additional capital to realize these opportunities. We actively cooperate with entrepreneurs on strategic development and operational improvements. We are not doing this alone, but together with involved investors and entrepreneurs from the healthcare and technology sector.

Our approach is based on three main pillars: value creation, partnership and networking and experience.

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 & 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.
