Our spearheads

Écart explicitly focuses on three spearhead sectors. With this, Écart bundles capital in sector knowledge, insight and practical experience.

Services

In 1995 Écart participated in the secondment company Balance, which developed from starter to a holding company with four operating companies with a turnover of EUR 25 million. Afterwards, Écart invested three times in companies that grew into holdings with various operating companies that are supported by shared service centers. It concerns a secondment organization aimed at the government, an absence management company and a service provider in case of personal injury.

IT

Écart has invested a total of six times in an IT company since 2009. Écart likes to invest in new SaaS and software companies. The Écart team actively supports these companies in realizing their growth ambitions. It provides value growth and knowledge, strengthens the financial processes and provides support in the analysis of business processes.

Packaging

The first participation of Écart in 1993 was a packaging company: the Woerdense Touw- en Zakkenhandel. Since then, Écart has invested in three other packaging companies. The packaging companies were bought from DGAs who remain as a director for a limited period of time. Subsequently, new management was attracted to take over the baton.
