Wagram has been partnering with
managers and entrepreneurs since 1996.

About us

Wagram was founded in 1996. We partner with managers and entrepreneurs to strengthen and grow their business. Our focus is on small and medium-sized companies in Northwest Europe with significant untapped potential. Partnership situations vary from corporate carve-outs, management buyouts and successions to complex challenging situations.

We are long-term investors without a predetermined investment horizon. We only invest our own capital and the committed capital of a few entrepreneurial families, allowing us to move fast and to focus on long-term value creation.

Our team consists of experienced partners with a strong track-record. We do not employ further staff, that means you always interact with one of the partners. We build strong relationships on the basis of positive and constructive dialogues underpinned by data and analyses.

Wagram adds value as a capital provider and non-executive board member by being a sparring partner on topics ranging from business strategy, operations, to M&A, but we can also offer more hands-on support when necessary. In our view management is responsible for running the business and our support is customized to the needs of the business and its management.

Building companies is what we believe in. We look for companies in attractive industries with a differentiating value proposition and an ambitious team. Our current partnerships have total sales of more than € 500 million and employ more than 1,500 employees in The Netherlands and abroad.

We stimulate companies to focus on their core business, to be quick in decision making and to be action orientated. We understand that entrepreneurship involves taking calculated risks, and that the development of a company is not a straight line but rather a bumpy road and highly dependent on people. Together we will succeed and have fun along the way.
