Venture capital works for the few.

Huge numbers of SMEs and tech companies go underfunded.

A network of PE professionals across Europe support Tikto's transactions and help to implement strategies for profitability and later stage growth.

They provide a potential off-ramp too as PE, alongside trade, are naturally interested in our portfolio of companies.

PE Professionals

Tikto has selected a number of Tech Operators, all with successful businesses and exits under their belts, to work closely with our businesses post-investment.

They help to deliver the next stage of growth to our portfolio of companies.

Operating Partners
What do the transactions look like?

We do full buy-out and majority ownership transactions. We also look at minority transactions where there is a clear path to majority ownership.
Much of our investment goes into the purchase of ownership but a significant incremental amount is invested post-transaction which is used for investments in growth, profitability and people.

In some cases we may use debt though this is not essential. If a debt burden could get in the way of our growth objectives it makes no sense to us.

Why choose Tikto as a growth partner?

We work with businesses ready for the next stage in their growth journey: providing finance and support for tech companies that want to endure and prosper and are excited by that vision.

In many cases existing founders, management and shareholders will realise some, or all, of their investment in their business to date.

We're in for the long term. We aim to provide a reliable off-ramp to private equity or trade within a 5-10 year horizon but we have a flexible structure so can and do hold investments in perpetuity.

How do you work with companies post-investment?

We've developed a world-class playbook for growing tech businesses rooted in our experience of operating and investing in tech companies.

We consider the areas of product-market-fit, acquisition and growth, profitability, management-governance-monitoring, and people to identify high-conviction interventions to deliver on our shared growth objectives.
