We manage direct investments (Venture Capital & Private Equity) and investments in European VC funds:
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 we continuosly work in fund raising for our funds, third party funds via our CMA unit and M&A via our corporate finance Division, we have a lot of access to investors and buyers, and that is the reason we are much better at exiting than the average VC. Our entrepreneurs can benefit from this in their journey alongside Axon.
Fund of Funds:
Aurora Fund-of-Funds has a Pan-European focus, being both sector and stage agnostic, and ready to invest in all stages from Early to Growth. The investment strategy includes mostly primary deals, but with the right mix of direct co-investments and secondary opportunities, so as to reduce the J-curve and provide an IRR kicker. This strategy is only possible because of the experience, know-how and capillarity Axon has at the European VC and innovation landscape”
