Straco is a Belgian independent private equity firm emerged from an entrepreneurial family background.
“We support ambitious companies and their management team in achieving long term growth. Straco currently operates in the Benelux, UK, France, Germany, Poland and is looking to invest in growth initiatives designed to drive long term value creation. When we seek to acquire market leading companies, we aim to differentiate our firm through our focus and speed that enables us to move substantially faster as compared to traditional private equity firms which makes us a very reliable partner in a transaction. We are very patient in our approach but we spend significant time getting to the bottom of what drives a business so that if we understand and like a business, we seek to pursue a transaction with a very high conviction."Read more about our firm »
