GENEO is an investment company
and accompaniment, composed of
of entrepreneurs and families,
which supports SMEs and ETIs
in their development projects
reason for being
We provide invested SMEs and SMBs with the solutions to achieve their ambitions, in a sustainable and positive impact approach.
This positive finance has a long-term perspective. Its capital is human, its responsibility goes beyond corporate social responsibility to seek a positive impact, and it pays a double dividend, financial and social.
A collective investment
Our entrepreneurs are Builders and they can help other entrepreneurs to become Builders. Everywhere in the territories, SMEs and ETIs that are innovative in their market want to accelerate their growth to become leaders in Europe or internationally. By creating entrepreneurial capital, GENEO gives them the means to achieve their ambition.
A fair share of the value
For GENEO, equity is the condition for sustainable growth. That is why we are committed to sharing the value created by our investments.
→ In the companies we support, we encourage value-sharing measures among employees.
→ Within the GENEO management team, we have set up a profit-sharing scheme for all employees, allowing the whole team to be welded together.
→ In the territories, we are committed to paying one third of the performance-based remuneration (carried interest) to an endowment fund. This fund supports the philanthropic actions of members of the GENEO Community, particularly those aimed at creating jobs in the regions and long-term social projects.
Our growth levers
Making a positive impact
