The typical Pioneer deal has the following features in common:
- Within the Sustainability and Digital Economy sectors
- Investment range between €10 and €50 million
- EBITDA between €2 and €10 million
- Potential to benefit from active, knowledgeable investors
- Sub-sector with significant growth and downside protection
- Value driven by growth, not leverage
Pioneer’s goal is to spot important trends in its areas of expertise, one or two years before others, and to seek out entrepreneurs with similar vision operating in sub-sectors experiencing potentially beneficial change. Pioneer’s history demonstrates consistent achievement of this goal, and the Pioneer partners’ skills and professional networks give them an advantage which does not come naturally to single country or pan-European generalists. As a result Pioneer is able to work with management and support smaller companies in distinctive and often unique ways.
