In addition, Dacapo has at its disposal a network of industrial professionals who are brought into investments as appropriate. This takes place as part of an active process: they too become actively involved in this process as corporate investors themselves, in order to secure strategic development of the business domain. We do this with the clear intention to re-establish the business domain to be acquired - strategically, organisationally, and operationally - and to secure its long-term viability.A prerequisite for involvement is the readiness of all participants to accept the Dacapo partners as active entrepreneurs in the target for investment. For the company or business domain this means - besides capital - access to excellent management experience, access to existing and new markets and to an extensive international network.
