CANOVA IS A PARTNERSHIP OF PRIVATE EQUITY ENTREPRENEURS SPECIALIZED IN CLUB DEAL TRANSACTIONS. EACH PARTNER IS BOTH MANAGER OF THE INVESTMENT AND INVESTOR.
Canova has been active since 2001 and, since 2010, has focused on SME-related Club Deals.
It has always thought in terms of Club Deals, thanks to the flexibility of approach, experience and relationships built over time.
Canova is able to analyse and organize operations in various segments:
- Early stage (with investments made mainly by Canova partners)
- Development capital (equity value investments between € 10-20 mln)
- Generational changes
- Built up strategies and larger deals in partnership with institutional investors
- Special situations in partnership with specialized operators
Where opportunities cannot be the subject of direct investment, Canova is able to activate a network of leading institutional investors.
Investors are predominantly entrepreneurs and family offices with strong industrial skills, who share the objective of creating a network to support the creation of value in investee companies.
In every Canova’s transaction there is a manager who shares the industrial project and its risk, and assumes the responsibility for implementing it.
