Entrepreneurship is above all an ever-learning curve, and in my journey as an entrepreneur I have been lucky to learn a lot from fellow team members, advisors, and customers alike.
Along the bumpy road of learning and growing the business, one of the key things I realized is that the best business model is, first and foremost, when you put your heart and soul into your work. Second, know when the time comes to let your trusted experts do their jobs.
Ecolog, my first company, started as a small business providing a single support service to a single customer! It was a humble beginning that opened the door to a vast market, but one with heavy and well-established competition. These competitive barriers quickly turned into an opportunity, as it made us realize a niche and offer a unique proposition to a seasoned market. Contrary to the norm, Ecolog not only started offering integrated service solutions, but also self-performed every single service. It was a revolution in the sector that allowed the company to position itself as a market leader offering one-stop shop solutions for services and infrastructure.
In the first five years, I focused on assembling a management team and building a corporate structure. Once the company reached a sizeable growth and stabilized, after the day-to-day management to very qualified and experienced senior executives and let them bring the company to the next phase. This was a difficult choice, but it gave me the opportunity to focus on new developments. That was the moment ND Group was created, as a holding company to consolidate the existing portfolio, but above all as a platform to implement other entrepreneurial ventures using the same unconventional approach as a business development model.
I have a strong belief that business always requires the same ingredients for success: a winning combination of talent and personalities, full commitment, and the right management. ND Group is based on these principles. Our goal is to realize entrepreneurial ideas, dreams, and ambitions with potential for long-term growth. We will support entrepreneurs not only with capital, but also with business acumen, networks, and the extensive experience of a unique team of people and companies to realize those dreams. This is what we call Private Equity with Emotion.
ND Group is well positioned for further growth and is interested in getting to know entrepreneurs who share our ideas and business philosophy to explore mutual opportunities. We look forward to meeting you.
