Investment criteria

We invest in solid, profitable companies run by motivated and experienced managers who possess entrepreneurial zest. This is what makes high-potential organisations stand out from the rest. Common characteristics of previous investments are:

  • a strong (niche) market position;
  • a proven track-record and sustainable cash flow;
  • an operating result of at least two million euro;
  • ample growth opportunities (buy & build);

A shared strategic vision based on personal chemistry between the management team on the one hand and the Gilde team on the other is also of the utmost importance.

We would welcome the opportunity to hear your ambitions and ideas. If you would like to share these in confidence, please contact one of our partners .
