Equiliant Capital focuses on investments in Romanian entrepreneurial companies. The investment fund was established in 2019 by the Pavăl family, the owners of Dedeman, the largest Romanian DIY chain and the most valuable Romanian entrepreneurial business. Equiliant invests in Romanian entrepreneurial SMEs that have high growth potential in Romania and/or foreign markets. Our objective is to accelerate the growth of the companies we invest in. We look for companies that have the potential to challenge the status quo and become tomorrow’s champions in their industry. First and foremost, we invest in entrepreneurs and their dreams, so that they can fulfil those dreams faster than they otherwise could have, before the market matures and the accelerated growth opportunity disappears. We aim to be the catalyst of a company’s growth strategy, but the entrepreneur remains the one who develops and executes that strategy. We therefore prefer to hold minority positions, so that the entrepreneur can remain the main beneficiary of the investee company’s success.
