We look for the best entrepreneurs to deliver great results to our investors

Direct Technology Investments

We are entrepreneurs ourselves, down to earth but ambitious. We like entrepreneurs who are committed and passionate about their projects and share our same values of hard work and integrity.

We invest in all stages, from seed to growth capital, therefore we understand all the phases of a company to become successful.

  • Because we are a relatively large firm with multiple business activities our investment managers have access to research, networks and talent all around the world. These assets are given to all the entrepreneurs we back.
  • Because our Advisory Division works continuously with investors and corporations, we have a lot of access to investors and buyer’s interests, and that is the reason we are much better at exiting than most of our peers. Our entrepreneurs can benefit from this in their journey alongside Axon.

Axon is a diversified company across geographies which enables cross fertilisation of our exit processes. Our holding periods are much better than the average, below four years.

Axon is a larger company than its peers, our processes and reporting standards are high above the industry. We adhere to ILPA and PRI standards for valuation and social responsibility

Our track record speaks for itself with multiple exits and significant success stories helping companies transform, grow and exit in critical moments. Of the five funds invested in the past, two are upper decile worldwide, one is upper quartile and the other two are above the average return according to Preqin. This is the reason why highly reputed investors continue to trust on us.

Open mandates

Currently, we are actively investing in technology scale-ups in Europe, with a preference for growth stages. We continue to scout other geographies where we have invested in the past such as India and LatAm.
