Our Approach

What we do

Haerlem Capital capitalizes on a well balanced mix of inhouse industry expertise, seasoned managerial skills, access to capital markets, and a constant search in the market to improve its existing portfolio. That mix is unique and, when aligned, extremely powerful.

Operational choice is to have a strong sales team for cash flow generation, and maintain our thought leadership position in the market. In this position we can spot where the market is going, where the sweet spots are, and make our build/buy/acquire decisions.

The screening phase

We constantly screen the market on the opportunities to invest or co-operate. With the strong focus on synergy between the portfolio companies, we seek for great ideas or businesses which can lead to win-win-win combinations.

Evaluation

Everything starts with a conversation. Every company is unique, and so is every business or investment opportunity. We are open for ideas and discussions, in which we are quite explicit. Having a concise pitch helps a lot.

Engagement

In this phase, we are looking for the strategical, cultural and operational fit. We are all different, but we must achieve the same goal. Define it, agree on it, and put it on paper.

Execution

We prefer to work in partnership where both sides work together. We facilitate company transformations, productization of service offerings, entering strategic partnerships and building the business.
