Amsterdam, September 8, 2016

With the increase, INKEF is able to continue its diversified investment strategy to support (financially, strategically and organizationally) innovative technology ventures with a strong growth perspective, (initially) with a clear focus on companies with a link to the Netherlands
Distinguishing characteristics of INKEF’s strategy are:
- Multisector focus in Healthcare and ICT/ New Media/Financial Technology
- Long term horizon (15 years): this enables INKEF to support a portfolio company over the different growth phases
- Staged investment strategy: positions are built in sync with company development, progress and success.
INKEF focuses on ventures addressing relevant global markets, that have a globally distinctive proposition, with management that has a global ambition.
INKEF seeks to partner with international co-investors to further support portfolio companies on their international roll out of their businesses. In addition, INKEF will continue to team up with (international) entrepreneurs, research institutes and industry partners to build highly innovative companies.
INKEF’s investment strategy has led to several successful exits over the recent years.
