God doesn’t necessarily give us the partner we want but rather the partner we need.
Show me how you will measure me and I’ll show you how I will perform.
Leaders need to make sacrifices. The biggest of them all - is the risk to be wrong.
You made a mistake, now go on and fix it.
I’m such a selfish capitalist that I give you what you want so that I can get what I want! It’s about the freedom to choose.
Tell me your problem, but more important what you plan to do about it.
We’re not creatures of circumstances, we are creators of circumstances
We will tolerate when you lose money, but if you break our reputation, we will be ruthless.
Merge your talent with your problems, that will give you purpose.
Our services surpass those of a private equity partner. We bring skills, experience and solid commercial networks to the fore, enabling our investments to thrive, rather than merely survive. We believe in partnerships and prefer to co-invest. All partnerships are structured to create win-win situations for all stakeholders. We actively manage assets under our portfolio. This gives us the edge in developing highly competitive agri-businesses.
We capture upstream margins starting with companies in genetics and primary farming, the seeds from which all other agriculture follows.
Our aim is to capture margins in every link of the agricultural value chain – starting with companies in genetics and primary farming, the seeds from which all other agriculture follows. We provide them with capital and expertise and then manage them as part of our investment portfolio.
