What is our approach?

Intera focuses on accelerating growth of its portfolio companies. Both organic and M&A-driven growth are in the core of Intera’s strategy. The aim is to considerably strengthen the strategic position of portfolio companies, which is often supported by international expansion during Intera’s ownership.

Portfolio company management teams have a key role in reaching the objectives for growth. Intera supports the management teams with all possible means. Portfolio company management will always have a significant ownership in their company. Management ownership is structured individually for each investment to fit the investment situation and growth phase of the company.

Intera´s role is to ensure implementation of the business strategy formulated for each portfolio company and provide the portfolio companies with access to capital. Execution of the strategy is supported through intensive and professional board work. Together with its entrepreneurial partners Intera recruits a competent board of directors with relevant experience and fit to the growth phase of the individual company.

Intera can add value especially in demanding transformative situations, such as major acquisitions, industry restructurings and generational shifts. Intera´s investment professionals have been involved in creating a number of corporate success stories together with successful entrepreneurs.
