Southern Europe, and specially Spain, is a region we know very well. Axon has been awarded several times the prize for best VC in Spain. Our deep access and capillarity in the market ensures that the best deals always pass through our screening committees. We help companies consolidate the market and expand globally. A lot of our companies have expanded to Europe, Latam or the US. We also provide a lot of support in digital marketing strategies and M&A.

In India we co-invest with local VC partners in growth stories. We love India because is a large subcontintent with strong fundamentals, good legal systems and a great entrepreneurial ecosystem. Because of our unique position in India, as the only European/latinamerican investor, we are normally preferred partners when companies need investors who can bring know how from Europe, Latam, Middle East or Africa.

It is a large region which can only be tackled from a panregional perspective. Axon has already developed leading positions having done some of the best exit case studies of recent years. Because of the volatility of the region, we think a true value investor in Latam needs to be in the market all along the macro cycles, to profit when the time is good and hold when is wise to do so. We are as latinamerican as anyone born in Bogota, Caracas, Buenos Aires or Mexico DF.

Axon has been present in Africa since 2008 doing advisory work to regional blue chip companies and governments. We are now penetrating with investment strategies aimed at creating the leading companies of the future. Our multinational DNA and acumen for emerging market makes us unique to discover and execute opportunities in Africa.In addition , due to our relationship with top clients in the region we can as well anticipate macro streams for the benefit of our portfolio companies.
