we invest in smart ideas
Vargas Holding invests in smart ideas that contribute to a sustainable future. With extensive experience of industrial strategies, major deals, telecom and transaction-intensive segments, we know that the fastest way to achieve this is by adopting entirely new approaches, technologies and structures. This frequently involves realising opportunities for smart resource use offered by digitalisation. Now, we want to provide the leadership and commitment to what our world needs going forward.
This is why we invest in companies based on new, transformative technologies and business models. Companies that establish new rules for the market. We monitor macro trends and have our sights trained on ideas that have clear growth potential that at the same time reduce humans’ negative environmental impact. We’re happy to go in as majority owners and naturally see this as a long-term commitment.
ONE OF THE FEW THAT’S THERE FROM THE GET-GO
We go in early and stimulate what we see as part of the future. The fact that we’re involved from the outset and build companies from the ground up entails a considerable level of commitment and support from our side. We welcome being majority owners. Our involvement is based on partnership and trust, and we give considerable freedom to entrepreneurs.
