Investment Approach

INVENIO Partners discovers target companies with a solid track record and potential for a leadership position in their respective industry.  We invest in companies with competitive business models and find it particularly attractive if the company is managed by an experienced team, and presents opportunities for vertical and/or horizontal integration as well as regional expansion. Our target companies typically generate annual turnover in the range of EUR 3 – 25 million.

Type of financing

We provide growth & buyout funding in the form of equity or quasi-equity instruments. The funding benefits from the support of the European Union under the Equity Facility for Growth established under Regulation (EU) No 1287/2013 of the European Parliament and the Council establishing a Programme for the Competitiveness of Enterprises and small and medium enterprises (COSME) (2014-2020)

Size of Investment

Our investment focus is in the equity segment under EUR 10m. However, by partnering with our investors or by bringing onboard external investors, we always have the capability to structure transactions requiring higher equity capital. 

In order to be able to deliver the highest possible value to both our partners and our investors, we look to invest in control or strong minority positions that allow us to fully implement our operating model. 

Key Industries

We work hard to maintain expertise across a variety of industries, including manufacturing, retail, light industry, transportation and logistics, food processing, technology, healthcare, education, and hospitality.


We invest in companies in their growth stage of development, looking to achieve the next level of their development through regional expansion or industry consolidation.


We invest regionally in Southeastern Europe with a focus on Bulgaria, Romania, and Serbia.
