ND Group was founded in 2008 by entrepreneur Nazif Destani in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Nazif founded ND Group with the vision of building a private equity proposition with an unconventional approach based on agile, flexible decision-making and a close, personal involvement with portfolio companies that puts people first.

A highly successful entrepreneur himself with a track record of building small businesses into global operations, Nazif also wanted to create an investment company that was not restricted by transaction sizes, sectors, or geography –  instead accommodating both established growing businesses and smaller, entrepreneurial ventures with unconventional but innovative ideas looking for the right support.

ND Group moved its headquarters to Eindhoven, the Netherlands, in 2014.
