Goals and assumptions

The idea behind the partnership is the development of innovative and novel projects based on ambitious assumptions and a high growth potential. We enable recapitalization of projects, at the same time ensuring a diversification of the risk distributed between the originator and investor. We allow for further development of the project and effective execution of investment goals that guarantee an increase of the company’s value.

What we especially value are solutions dedicated for owners of car wash stations that fully employ the surrounding space and positively impact he competitiveness and attractivity of the facility in the region. We are also looking for solutions that increase the economic effectiveness of the car wash station by reducing its operational costs. We analyze each project individually and reliably.
