DEVELOPMENT CAPITAL UNLEASHES ENTREPRENEURIAL POWER AND CAPITALISED EARNINGS
As a company independent of banks and industry, our experienced team supports entrepreneurial hopefuls with equity, expertise and an international network.

When the opportunity lies in change. As a rule, we acquire companies that are in a transition phase and act as “change agents”. In close co-operation with the responsible management team, we develop them into successful, sustainable market players and create a continuous increase in value for the benefit of all parties involved. Acquisitions can take very different forms:
- Transformation of listed companies into private companies
- Acquisition of segments from group spin-offs
- Connecting family businesses and strategic investors
- Company acquisitions in the context of industry consolidations
When the opportunity lies in technological progress. PATIO Direkt Service also acquires stakes in innovative technology companies or takes them over if there is corresponding development potential. We provide capital for research and development R&D, the market launch of productslaunching of new products, and setting up production and internationalisation.
The question is not whether opportunities exist, but rather what they are and how they can be safely realised.
