The primary goal of the Investment Team is to drive value throughout the investment cycle. This is done by finding and investing in the industry winners, by maximizing value creation during the holding period though active board representation and finally to facilitate an optimal exit process to maximize return for the investors.
The actual investment decision is made in co-operation with the Advisory Board. The team supports and drives the entrepreneurs in the portfolio companies with relevant business, financial and scientific inputs.
The Investment Team is divided between people with an engineering background and people with a financial background. They are characterized by having an international industrial and financial background within the energy sector and can document strong business execution skills combined with financial insight and deal making skills. The Team is headed by Managing Partners Poul Erik Schou-Pedersen and Jens Christian Mathiesen.
The Investment Team’s core competence is the individual team member’s deep specialist knowledge and great experience within the energy technology field, business development and financial management. The Team works directly on research & development, production, distribution and marketing issues in a constant interplay with the portfolio companies. Furthermore, managerial and administrative sparring is carried out. This process adds important value to the portfolio companies to maximize value creation.
