We invest into proven business models alongside founders and other experienced investors in a partnership approach. We are funded by leading institutional investors including insurance companies, family offices and fund-of-funds. In addition, our investor base includes a network of c. 100 high calibre individuals from the founder, corporate finance, investment and corporate community providing us with a unique network in our core region.
Our companies typically generate at least EUR10 million of revenues with a technology-enabled superior business model, benefit from strong organic growth rates and a recurring revenue model as well as a strong base business with attractive unit economics. CGC can invest into influential minorities as well as majorities tailored to the requirements of the individual situation.
We believe that digitalization and technology will be a key driver for the sustainable success of any company. The recent events around the pandemic will serve as a catalyst for disruption through tech-enabled business models and accelerate the transformation of traditional businesses.
We believe that value generation can best be achieved through a combination of growth and cashflows. In accordance with this conviction we are building a balanced portfolio of disruptive proven companies as well as established businesses with strong transformational capabilities.
Through our heritage as well as our investor and partner network, we have one the strongest networks in the DACH region. Consequently, we are focused on targets rooted in this region using our proprietary and early access to attractive companies.
We believe in the symbiotic partnership between founders and managers on one side and investors on the other side. With a very high level of structuring flexibility we are guided by the principles of alignment of targets and incentives. We are backing strong founders and management teams who run businesses with best-in-class business models.
All of our investments promote environmental and social sustainability. We believe that an active and measurable ESG agenda promotes best in class environmental, social, and good governance practices which is key success factor for our portfolio companies.
Our team is well positioned to capture our opportunity set. Through our extensive experience in private equity as well as our early stage network we will avoid hype investments and prudently deploy capital into proven business models where product development as well as full-scale commercialization has been accomplished. We only invest in businesses which have positive unit economics and which have proven to be able to operate with profitability. We will also invest in traditional business where technology can enable superior organic and inorganic growth rates.
We are looking to build out our team and are keen to meet talented people with an interest to work in a young, modern, and fast growing investment platform like ours. CGC focusses on investing in one of the most promising segments in the next decade and our firm is plugged into the DACH ecosystem of tech-enabled growing companies through our investors, employees, advisors as well as managers and partners in our portfolio companies.
In addition to institutional investors, CGC is supported by a high-calibre network of over 100 senior professionals from the M&A, PE, corporate and founder community who are not only invested in the fund but also actively support CGC and its portfolio companies with operational expertise and opportunities.
