The Odewald KMU partnership model

In Odewald KMU’s self-image, an investment in a company is more than an investment that is ultimately only about returns. We are always concerned with our investments in the sense of a value-enhancing partnership for sustainable entrepreneurial growth. To this end, we have developed a partnership model with which we create a sustainable and constructive foundation for each investment.

The systematic re-investment of the current shareholders in the company is just as much an integral part of this partnership model as are clarity and transparency for all the parties involved. Moreover, there is the consistent investment and participation of the management in the company’s success, deliberately conservative and demand-orientated financing structures, as well as – and this is ultimately crucial – a joint value-adding strategy supported by all the parties involved.
