VADO: plenty of room for entrepreneurship
Seeing opportunities, taking advantage of those opportunities, and thereby creating value for people and society: good entrepreneurship forms the basis for every successful company.
Long-term sustainable growth
At VADO we understand that like no other. It stands to reason that, as an investor, we not only focus on the short term, but also on the long term. We don’t set our sights on the quick profit; we mainly look at how a company can continue to grow and stay healthy and solid in the long term
The companies in which we invest are given the space to expand their entrepreneurship and continue to grow in a healthy way through innovations and acquisitions. At the same time, we support companies by sparring and thinking with them about strategy. We also have a network of trusted specialists who can provide support on specific topics. The goal: to achieve long-term sustainable growth based on mutual trust.

We speak the language of the entrepreneur
This is also reflected in the configuration and ways of working of our investment team. Specialists with a solid background in the (manufacturing) industry and with in-depth knowledge of what entrepreneurship truly means. People who speak the language of the entrepreneur and understand better than anyone what it means to be responsible for both a company and the people who work there.
Shared vision, shared values
As a long-term investor, we like to build close ties with the manufacturing companies in which we invest and work together on the basis of mutual trust and respect. Before a potential company acquisition, we take the time to get to know each other and to discover whether we could be compatible. We ask ourselves things like: to what extent do our vision and our core values match? What are the majority shareholders’ ambitions after the acquisition? We only continue to the next step when both parties have a good feeling about the business transfer.
