Entrepreneurship is working hard to realise one’s dreams

With both feet firmly on the ground, that is. Because every choice that you make as an entrepreneur is a serious assessment of the risk you will be running as opposed to the returns you expect, and related to the business mission that you have chosen.

This requires that a private equity firm as (potential) shareholder has a similar down-to-earth vision of entrepreneurship as well as an affinity with the entrepreneur’s perception of the environment. The ability to empathise sincerely with the business and the entrepreneur is an essential requirement. Only then can every effort be made together with the entrepreneur to realise these dreams together.
