For us, nothing is greater than building a thriving business over time.
As long-term investors, we appreciate the compounding effect of time on financial returns but most importantly, we like to be a part of the journey and we take pride in building great brands and influential companies. Getting here isn’t easy; it takes a unique alignment of mindset, competences and investment horizons; but when you have time and financial resources on your side, severe downside risks are significantly reduced and you can focus with serenity on building a great business.
In this strategy, we look for profitable businesses with a disruptive advantage in a large addressable market. We are particularly interested in specific know-hows, authentic stories and great, down-to-earth management teams who are aiming at a sustainable growth trajectory. We focus on the retail and consumer industries with or without a manufacturing component. Our initial investment amount is flexible but would typically be around $20m for an influential position in the company.
If you think we could be a valuable partner to your company, we would like to hear from you. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
CASE STUDY: La Boulange & The Bay Bread Group
We had known Pascal Rigo, the founder of the Bay Bread Group, for eight years before becoming an investor in 2006. We shared a passion for good food and authentic values. When we became partners, we agreed on a simple strategy: to continue selling distinctive artisan bakery products wholesale and develop locally our cafe-bakery-retail concept under the La Boulange brand.
Since then, the business has grown tremendously, but the strategy has remained intact. Next World Group continues to play an important role in bringing the strategic and financial stability necessary to attract talented management and financial partners in helping to organize the company through its rapid growth. This has helped Pascal and the bakers at Bay Bread continue to bring enjoyable products to an ever-growing customer base. We are very proud of the success of this partnership and excited about the many opportunities that lie ahead of La Boulange and the Bay Bread Group.
