New success

New successes are generally achieved faster with new impulses – by strengthening a business’s financial capacity, increasing its level of expertise, professionalizing its processes, systems and teams. Once a company has come to perform well with a particular product or service, in a particular sales channel, in a particular geography, what’s next? With over 25 years of experience in transitions of founder-led enterprises and expanding family businesses, we understand what is needed to accelerate growth.

Active shareholder

In addition to capital, we provide strategic expertise and access to an expansive network. Foreman is an active investor who stays on the sidelines: the day-to-day management remains at all times the exclusive domain of the executive board.

We are an ever-present sounding board for executives and entrepreneurs for all the concerns that keep business leaders awake at night – from strategic matters like “buy and build” to international expansion and from operational aspects such as ERP implementation to the psychology surrounding the optimisation of team composition, filling key positions and the succession of founder-led leadership.

Foreman values privacy and prefers to remain out of the spotlight, leaving the light to shine where it should — on the business and the people who put their hearts and souls into achieving its objectives every day.

Sparring partner focused on people and business

By teaming up with Foreman, both the business and the entrepreneur gain a functional sparring partner to help come to better decisions. Our value-add for the growth of the companies we invest in falls into two main categories:

1) more effective entrepreneurship by adding capacity, experience and capital
2) professionalization of processes through expertise and innovation

We know better than anyone how to advance the professionalization of our investments, for example by broadening management in the area of HR and strengthening businesses’ financial organization. Furthermore, we have a great deal of experience in assisting and advising the transition from founder-led enterprise to one that is led by an executive team.

We actively participate in the development of new product-market combinations and advise on how to realize growth by identifying and implementing international buy-and build strategies and handling the associated funding affairs.

Companies are able to work more professionally, which leads to increased efficiency, satisfaction and performance, both as an employer and as a part of society.
