Active ownership to private companies

About Us

Helix Partners is a Finnish investment company founded by two driven professionals to make an impact on private company ownership and management. We are looking to acquire small and medium-sized companies in Finland and lead them to greater success.

We provide our target companies with strategic, managerial and operational guidance deriving from our own professional experiences and our network of seasoned advisors. We will take an operational responsibility when needed and provide an active ownership model.

Helix Partners operates without a predetermined investment period and may own a target company indefinitely.

We focus on value creation recognizing all stakeholders and devote our time to each target company for as long as we can make a positive impact.

We bring additional capabilities to our target companies

Investment focus

We seek to acquire a majority ownership in mature businesses with a proven and sustainable business model. Other desirable target company characteristics we are looking for are e.g.:

  • History of high-quality cash flows
  • Growing and non-cyclical market
  • Strong or niche position
  • Recurring revenue
  • EUR 5-20 million in revenue and EUR 1-3 million EBIT

Our core principle is to maintain the target company’s legacy and to build on it

We want to operate hands-on with our target companies and therefore can invest in companies facing a generational change or that are in other special situations where the current owner and top management want to exit.
