You might be looking for an investor in various different situations. You may want to accelerate growth or acquire another company. Or you are given the opportunity for a management buy-out. Or any other occasion that requires financing, such as a share transfer, a large investment or the buyout of a co-shareholder.

The reason for involving Karmijn will generally be a financial one. But as an entrepreneur you will probably find that money is available in many places and that the people you are going to cooperate with are equally important.

Types of transactions


You have a great company, with good results. You're thinking about acquiring one or more companies, to improve your marketposition or efficiency. But what's the best way to proceed with acquiring a company and how do you finance it? You want to be supported by an experienced partner. As an investor, we are happy to work with you or take the lead during negotiations, due diligence and the final acquisition.

Growth Support

Your business is growing fast. There are so many opportunities. How do you prioritise? More than financial resources you might be looking for a sounding board, a partner that helps you shape further growth and supports you in the professionalization of your company. Because that has to grow too. How to accelerate internationalization, how to set up an organizational structure, where to find good managers?

Management Buy-Out Or Acquisition

As management you bear the responsibility for the company. Suddenly a moment comes when the owner asks if you want to take over the company by means of a management buy-out. What an opportunity! Banks will only finance part of the acquisition and your private resources may be limited. You need financing from an investor.

Value creation, our core business.

We are good at growing companies.

We are not an investor that only comes to check the books once a year after we have made the initial investment. We try to be as supportive as possible. We can probably tell you little about your core business. But we have extended experience with growth, professionalisation and optimisation. Together we ensure that your company is ready for the future, for the next growth spurt, or for handover to a new owner or management.

As from day 1 we start working too. Topics that we want to discuss with you and that we will work on in the coming years include:


Commercial goals

Where do we want to be in 3, 5 or 10 years? How can we strengthen internal innovation? How do we expand abroad? Would acquisitions be good for the company?

Internal improvements

How should the internal organisation be changed in order to reach the company's goals? What ideas about improvements already live internally?

Management and leadership

Are you an excellent team? A great place to work for employees? How can we achieve that?


How can we make improvements in the field of sustainability and ESG (environment, social, governance)?

Financial optimisation

How thoroughly do you know your company? And what will be the expected results of the plans we made? What KPI's drive value in your company?

Our joint work takes time

We take that time, make a long-term agenda together. We also make sure that things really happen.

The implementation of the plans is teamwork: employees of your company, the Karmijn team and if necessary external experts will work together. Karmijn has a large network of experienced experts, we are happy to look for interesting relationships and introductions.

Value creation is our core business. Efficiency and finances are important concepts. Obviously. But loyal employees and customers are just as important to us. As well as stimulating diversity, creativity and innovation. And last but not least: fun. We believe in a long-term vision: both hard and soft aspects of doing business contribute to the growth and value of your company.
