Epoona is starting the new year with a new spirit and a new partner. We are pleased to welcome Bernhard Maier as our new partner in the Epoona team. He will lead the topics around Innovation & R&D. Together, his many years of industry expertise in the high-tech sector will enable us to further strengthen our core competencies in the focus areas of R&D, innovation and IoT in the future.
Epoona acts as a strategic and operational investor and deals with topics such as growth financing, company succession and scale-up. With the Buy&Build strategy, we have set ourselves the goal of expanding our portfolio and further developing our sustainable focus on Climate & Industrial Tech.
The Epoona team supports the participating companies as an operating partner and, with the background of the partners, offers over 20 years of industry expertise in the industrial sector. The Epoona partners take on both strategic and operational responsibility as C-level managers and directors.
We are actively looking for green technology companies that pursue a niche strategy. GreenTech means hardware to us and with the help of this, we want to drive fundamental change, especially in the areas of water, energy and recycling. Our Impact Portfolio is designed to promote green transformation, thus we have defined six business verticals: Water, Energy, AgTech, Special Machinery & Robotics, Recycling & Sustainable Deep Tech and Green Building. Our business verticals enable us to meet several SDGs and contribute to sustainability.
Looking ahead to the new year, our partners Lothar Stadler and Werner Töpfl recently gave an interview to the Wiener Wirtschaft Zeitung. We look forward to continuing to grow successfully while creating a positive impact on the environment.
