Our target companies representing many different sectors are in various stages of their lifecycles. Ajanta operates internationally and invests into rapidly growing private companies with scalable business models. 

We are a long-term owner

As the lead investor we are often financing, supporting and developing our holdings’ businesses together with our partners already from the very early stages of the companies’ lifecycles.  We actively seek to implement bolt-on acquisitions to further enhance the value growth of our businesses.
