We look to partner with entrepreneurial founders and owner-managers at transition points in their business journeys. We provide capital and assistance to help them grow and scale their businesses faster, and ultimately to realise their personal and professional ambitions.
Our capital is flexible and we approach every potential investment in a totally bespoke way, but often one or more of the following dynamics drives a desire to raise capital:
A desire to realign the business’s ownership structure, putting value in the hands of those creating it.
Organic growth plans which require external funding to deliver: geographic expansion, accelerated hiring or investment in product/service offerings.
Acquisitive growth requiring external funding and expertise to deliver.
Liquidity for shareholders who would like to partially de-risk and work alongside an investment partner to accelerate their growth ambitions.
Enterprise continues MML’s heritage as a true partnership investor, working alongside the teams we back as an engaged minority investor, not as an owner of their business. We never lose sight of the fact that we are invited into the businesses in which we invest, working alongside management to build collaborative, supportive relationships.
Our investee companies get all the benefits of the full MML team and network, with over 25 investment professionals based in London, Paris and New York. We draw on our heritage of having invested in over 140 businesses over 30 years. We have deep experience of working alongside management teams to deliver value growth through accelerating investment plans and M&A.
We are excited to support management teams, helping to grow their businesses to become true global leaders in their fields.
