Addressing shortage of craftsmen

The shortage of skilled craftsmen continues to intensify.

Why we invest

The shortage of skilled workers is hitting the construction and real estate industry hard and poses major challenges for the industry in course of the energy transition and decarbonization. We believe that the shortage can be addressed in two fundamental ways: We need to bring more new skilled workers into the trades and we need to make the craftsmen more productive, efficient and effective. That is why we invest in business models that address either sides.

“Through our more than 20 years expertise in wholesale and construction, we understand the craftsmen mindset and can provide this expertise and access to the relevant ecosystem to our portfolio companies.”
