Continuous value creation

Every investment by PINOVA is based on close collaboration with the other shareholders and senior executives built on mutual trust. The PINOVA team helps to address key strategic issues without engaging in operational matters. To gain a comprehensive strategic understanding of the business and develop a shared way forward, PINOVA starts by drawing up a Value Road Map together with the shareholders and management team.

Our Value Road Map is a blueprint for boosting the value of portfolio companies, which provides measurability and transparency into the expectations of all stakeholders. The Value Road Map covers a company's future across all horizons of growth.
