Strategic support

A booster of transformation and growth

In order to boost their growth, SMEs need more than just financing – they also need strategic support and access to a wide network in their home country and abroad.

With this in mind, B & Capital has developed a landmark proposition relying on the alliance between investment professionals and strategy consultants. The offer combines private equity on one side and the support, industry knowledge and international network of a strategy consulting firm on the other side. This is meant to be a booster of transformation and growth for small and medium enterprises – with a focus on France for the first pilot.

4 investment professionals

Philippe Zurawski and Bertrand Tissot, Partners, Mikaël Schaller, Investment Director and Bernard Arock, General secretary, have teamed up with Roland Berger around common values. These 4 founders are the key pillars of B & Capital . It is an independent company, with its own management and solely responsible for its investment decisions. Its investment activities are fully independent from Roland Berger's consulting activities.

For Roland Berger, this new partnership is the logical outcome of the firm’s decision to broaden its scope of activities, under the supervision of Charles-Edouard Bouée, CEO. Known as “ KTC ”, the concept is threefold:

  • K for Knowledge, Roland Berger's core expertise which includes strategy consulting, services to governments, restructuring and complex infrastructure projects
  • T for Technology, building a collaborative approach, as Terra Numerata platform
  • C for Capital, the extension of Roland Berger's support to investors

B & Capital will focus on companies whose valuations range between EUR 25 and 100 m, working mostly on six sectors with high growth perspectives: business services, health, retail, technology, specialized industries and environment.
