LU Holding reinvests all income in new investments in companies and has made approximately 30 exits over the years. We are always ready to help more companies from academia to the market.
How we build companies
Together with the founders, we are actively working to build an entrepreneurial team supplemented by a professional board with industrial experience and networks. We help verify technology, work with business models and find the right market segment. This shortens the initial development journey and increases access to growth capital.
We invest at a very early stage, primarily in technology and life science. Equality is high on our agenda. We know, and the research shows, that companies with equal teams and boards perform better than other companies, so when we build companies, we strive to build them equal from the start.
