What I really appreciate is the quality of people that work in Ardian, they are financial oriented but they have really the knowledge to understand what the entrepreneur thinks and to help the company growth. It is a good mix that is very difficult to find on the market because normaly between finance and entrepeneurship there is a sort of barrier.

Marco Corradino CEO and founder of Lastminute.com

We have invested significantly in the business over the past three years. To accelerate our growth, it was important that we choose a Partner with a strong understanding of the issues relating to international growth as well as the challenges associated with expanding our product range. Given the team’s track record and entrepreneurial approach, Ardian Growth was the obvious choice of partner for us.
