In this contemporary era of the knowledge economy and creativity...

Capital funds should not hinder but support any healthy and innovative business endeavors. The success of entrepreneurial ventures should be founded upon the human ability and the proper use of capital funds. Venture capital is the funding tool which possesses the best combination of ingredients for success. Businesses which made use of VC funds exhibited spectacular growth when compared to their counterparts.

For us in HDBI (ex TANEO), the Sovereign Fund-of-Funds of Greece, VC funds are not just a monetary investment. They are the means for reshaping the economy and for building solid and sustainable businesses. They are the vehicle for visions to come true. And last but not least they are the way to identify and promote the inherent values within every enterprise.
