HISTORY

Like some of the firms we back, we started out within a larger organisation before setting up as an independent entity.

That entrepreneurial drive has stayed with us and helps us to empathise with the founders and teams we work with. This, combined with our proven ability to help turn strong businesses into true champions, is why we have become the region’s go-to investor for sustainable growth.

Our roots within EMP Global, as drivers of the AIG Emerging Europe Infrastructure Fund, helped us to build a rich network of professionals and an enviable track record. These put us in good stead to undergo our own management buy-out in early 2005 to form MidEuropa, independent and wholly owned by its Partners.

We’ve gone on to raise four funds since then, helping to build better businesses in the region and provide strong returns for our limited partners.
