HOW WE ASSIST
Convexa provides entrepreneurs specific competence and experience in building successful technology companies through every step of the value chain.
The ability to assist the companies through all phases becomes more and more important since the lead time from a local start-up to scaling internationally steadily becomes shorter. We have an established network in Scandinavia, Europe and the United States of America.
Convexa normally makes between 2-6 new investments per year.
During the entry phase we have active and intense discussions with management around the proposed business concept, market and distribution strategies and fund raising issues. The entry phase consists of two main activities: (1) Due Diligence; commercial, technical, legal and accounting , (2) Negotiations; valuation, term sheet negotiation and closing documents.
We aim to be a partner to entrepreneurs and their teams during the development of their young companies. We understand the needs of companies facing the challenges of strong growth and can offer new prospects through our network and investment portfolio. Rapid, scalable growth situations require a strong and active ownership focus with frequent interaction and a strong partnership with management.
Convexa has a proven exit track record through our nordic and global corporate network and experience with financial market dynamics we assist with processes related to the right opportunity for partnerships, strategic Mergers & Acquisitions, strategic sale or Initial Public Offering.
