"Europe is full of builder-builder entrepreneurs, builders of great entrepreneurial stories that will span generations. They are Europe's past, present and future. They are our pride and joy. GENEO is their Community. »
"Builders can help other entrepreneurs to become so. Throughout the territories, SMEs and ETIs, which are innovative in their markets, can accelerate their growth and become European or international leaders. By creating entrepreneurial capital, GENEO gives them the means to achieve their ambitions. »
"Equity is a prerequisite for sustainable growth. At GENEO, we have decided to distribute a significant portion of the earnings from investments in SMEs and ETIs to an endowment fund to enable new generations, particularly in neglected french territories, to launch their own business.
We want to promote a longer-term and more responsible vision of finance, and therefore more efficient, through this virtuous recycling of value. »
Making a positive impact
At GENEO, we defend a concrete approach to social and environmental responsibility, and offer SMEs and ETIs progress approaches adapted to their size and activity.
To this end, GENEO has designed a CSR self-diagnosis that makes it possible to identify, on around fifteen major topics, the company's strong points and areas of progress.
GENEO supports managers in defining realistic and measurable objectives, integrated into the Growth Portfolio and monitored throughout the investment period. The GENEO expert platform is mobilized to support the manager in the implementation of these actions.
Expanding the impact
A fair sharing
of the value
At GENEO, we believe that value creation must benefit as many people as possible. That is why we are committed to distributing the value created by our investments.
In supported companies, we encourage value sharing measures with employees.
Within the management team, GENEO has set up a profit-sharing scheme for all employees, allowing the whole team to be aligned and united.
In the territories: to ensure that the value generated benefits the company as a whole, the team has committed to pay one third of its carried interest to an endowment fund. This fund will complement the philanthropic actions of the members of the GENEO Community, aimed in particular at job creation in the territories and long-term societal projects.
Fascinated by those who do, who create and want to move the lines, the only ambition of the GENEO team is to wear each contractor's at the highest.
