Operational Investors experts at restructuring technology companies
Cogneum Partners have a proven track record of successfully restructuring software companies.
We are operational investors and intensely “hands on”. We implement business-led “technology-enabled” transformation; restructuring software, platforms, delivery, business operations, marketing and sales. We get our hands dirty with the ongoing day-to-day running and management to achieve ongoing growth and future business success.
Our focus is on opportunities where we can significantly improve business performance through technology and/or business/operational enhancement.
Our core executive group comprises software engineers, financial and legal experts; all with over 20 years’ experience of turning around and enhancing challenged businesses.
Behind this core is a team of highly skilled and experienced execution experts, including technology, coding, development, deployment, operations, and software commercialisation across a broad range of industries.
We are operational investors and therefore understand software product lifecycles:
These stages are typically transparent to customers. Every few weeks, we upgrade the product on the cloud which provides for incremental non-threatening improvements which allow for new and exciting functionality to be added seamlessly.
We primarily deliver:
We typically acquire all or part of the business or co-invest with existing principles. If you are looking for an exit, we can also buy out existing shareholders, whether in whole or in part, immediately or over a period of time.
We invest our own resources and can therefore be flexible in the type of deal structures that we enter into. We are not consultants; we take a stake in the organisation.
