Four professionals, driven by a common vision and a single shared goal: overcoming the role of the simple investor sharing their know-how with the entrepreneurs they believe in. Massimiliano Dendi (One Factory), Andrea Marangione (Maider), Dino Poggio (manager and business angel) and Gabriele Rossi (Aetos Partners) combine network, experience and expertise to create Net4Capital, an origination and management company serving private equity and venture capital industries, that focuses on entrepreneurial initiatives with validated business model and high growth potential.
Net4Capital works with the typical mechanisms of the club deal, allowing anyone interested to pursue investment opportunities.
The creation of a quality deal is an essential element for the success of a club deal: Net4Capital intends to offer higher value, distinguishing itself both in the due diligence phase and in the post-investment phase for its monitoring and value creation capabilities for the target. This can be done also thanks to the experiences gained personally by the four partners as entrepreneurs, investors and advisors. .
“I am very satisfied to have taken the first step in the realization of this new vehicle” says Massimiliano Dendi, president and co-founder of Net4Capital. “In Italy there is still a lot to do in the world of venture capital and private equity, especially in supporting emerging initiatives with a strong innovative purpose. I am convinced that the founders of Net4Capital have the right skills to support these kinds of initiatives, both financially and in terms of strategical and operational support “.
“Today more than ever, in the private capital market, investors are offered innumerable opportunities to invest in minority shares of startups, scaleups and SMEs”, underlines Dino Poggio, CEO and co-founder of Net4Capital. “Scouting, selecting and investing in truly interesting opportunities requires a lot of time, specific skills and networks. Furthermore, the capital is not sufficient for a successful investment. It is also necessary to be able to interact proactively with the companies in which you have invested, with the primary aim of promoting the right strategic direction and the creation of operational value, within the framework of a profitable relationship between entrepreneurs and investors “.
“A stimulating challenge for a new company that is born in a historical moment in which the close future investments will be important for the economic recovery of the country” says Andrea Marangione, Net4Capital advisor and co-founder. “Together with the other founders, and in collaboration with strategic partners that we identify each time based on the needs of the business, we want to focus on companies in which our contribution, in economic and know-how terms, is able to accelerate the creation of value”.
“I am proud and happy to participate in this initiative primarily for the professional and human level of the members with whom we founded Net4Capital”, concludes Gabriele Rossi, advisor and co-founder of Net4Capital. “The specific selection of investment opportunities, a precise direction in their enhancement, the depth of the contributions that we think we can make, are an added value for the target companies and for those who decide to participate in financial and managerial strengthening operations.”
