Sustainability

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

Michelangelo

 

With everything we do, we believe in making an impact for humanity, in transforming ecosystems of people, companies and products (or services). 

 

We believe good and strong humans are the engine behind the overall sustainability of our planet. We want to help employees becoming better humans.

 

We believe in the symbiosis between human and machine, not one replacing the other, but working in harmony.  And we believe that corporations have a key role to play in the 21st century, in creating good people to drive humanity forward, not just good employees.

 

Aetās’ acquires, operates, transforms and exits small and medium-size businesses operating in the Iberian Peninsula, with the philosophy of focusing on one-company-at-a-time.

 

Our aim is to transform businesses through innovation, digitalization, internationalization and genuinely embedding sustainability in the business model. With our expertise in new technologies, advanced analytics, design, branding, employee culture, and internationalization, we want to help strengthen and develop local communities and regional ecosystems.

 

We work with established, traditional, and industrial businesses that face a “special situation” such as succession planning tensions, under-digitalization, under-internationalization, or a combination of those. After all our operating, financial and profitability boxes have been checked, our key criteria in selecting a company/investment is its impact on the ecosystem in which it operates.

 

We work with businesses that can deeply impact their local community - suppliers, clients, employees, families, environment, etc. - if they were to disappear or on the contrary grow massively.

 

This is what we call “Investing with a Human Purpose”
