Private Equity Knowledge Sharing sessie
On Thursday February 27, 2014 Robeco will organize a Knowledge Sharing session on Private Equity for clients and other interested parties. Robeco's Private Equity team focuses primarily on selecting private equity managers who invest in small to mid-sized companies. Key to this selection is how and to what extent a manager is able to add value to a company.

One of the private equity managers selected by the team in recent years is Atomico. Atomico was founded in 2006 by Niklas Zennström, entrepreneur and co-founder of Skype, and focuses mainly on relatively young companies. Atomico has now invested in more than 50 companies, including Finnish firm Rovio (known for the Angry Birds game). He will share his view on private equity business models and explain how private equity can add value to companies in different stages of their development.

We hope to welcome you on February 27.

With kind regards,

Robeco
