Harnessing the power of digital transformation

Ardian Growth specializes in opportunities where digitalization is transforming market sectors, powering new services and enabling innovative ways of delivering existing propositions. We harness digitalization for our own investment activities, using data analytics, business intelligence, financial and social media sources to identify high-growth opportunities and entrepreneurs.

Major players in the entrepreneurial community

We have unrivalled connections among the digital entrepreneur communities in continental Europe many of whom are investors in our funds. We also frequently link our portfolio company founders with senior players for advice and support.

A proud record of supporting international growth

Many of our portfolio companies have strong growth potential outside their home market and for some, particularly in software and business services, the expanding US market is a key target. We provide vital support and advice to help entrepreneurs scale up outside their domestic market: six founders of our portfolio companies have relocated to the US to lead their international growth.
