Kreos Capital

Business Overview

Kreos was founded 21 years ago with the single mission of pioneering unique financing solutions for high-growth companies across Europe and Israel. Since then, Kreos has committed more than €2.6 billion in over 570 portfolio company transactions, in a variety of industry sectors and located in 16 countries.

Kreos has been a success because, unlike traditional lenders, Kreos understands the needs of high-growth companies and the unique challenges that they face as global competitors. We have worked with companies at all stages of development offering everything from operational runway extensions through acquisition financing. The common threads of our approach include operational flexibility, patience and commitment to creating value.
Kreos takes both a credit and an equity view on each financing situation, offering quick feedback on any deal proposal – investing without the need for board seats, time-consuming audits, share revaluation, substantial equity dilution, deposits or personal guarantees.

The Kreos team has the experience to understand what companies across all stages require, and is able to provide debt funding facilities that meet the real-world demands of growing businesses and equity sponsors and investors.
