Since 2011, we have invested in 70 projects across a variety of asset classes (equity, real estate, venture capital funds, start-ups, debt, and passive investments), for the most part in Slovakia.
Starting in 2016, we concentrated on two areas in particular – technology and real estate. We are a modest co-investor in UIPATH, Central Europe’s most successful tech company, which was valued at $38 billion at its NYSE IPO in April 2021.
Since 2021, our primary focus has been on investing in global technology blockchain funds. (www.g4-friends.com.cy)
