Since Neqst’s inception in 2008, we have invested in a relatively small number of exceptional companies. Or more correctly - we’ve invested in a few exceptional entrepreneurs. Because when we look at companies, we look at their products or services, their markets, their track record, but perhaps even more so their leaders. Do they have a vision? Can they execute on it? Do they share the same long-term approach to building companies that we do? If the answer to these questions is yes, are we confident that Neqst can add value in this particular situation?
If you’re an entrepreneur, take a look at our investment mandate [here]. Do you fit in? Then get in touch with us so we can learn about you, your company, your track record and your vision – and so that you can learn more about us.
