BB Capital for entrepreneurs
BB Capital stands for Buy & Build Capital: an investment company where entrepreneurial investors and entrepreneurial companies are connected, established to provide active growth capital. BB Capital not only invests capital, but also contributes to the growth of a company, by sharing knowledge and industry expertise from its network. BB Capital is involved as strategic shareholder in a company, actively supporting management and organizational processes. The focus of BB Capital differs considerably from ‘regular’ private equity firms. Our aim is to add value to the core of the business and we focus on performance rather than financial leverage. This results in a longer investment horizon than usual in the private equity sector.
