Elevating performance, together

We believe in winning through constantly improving. As the preferred growth partner to tech-enabled Northern European businesses, we have built a thriving ecosystem with collective insights, data and best practice used to facilitate learning and continuous improvement.

We structure our learning process across three dimensions:

  • Learning from each other – best knowledge exchange within the portfolio
  • Learning from Verdane-proprietary data and benchmarks
  • Learning from Verdane Elevate, our in-house operational expert team

Drive better business decisions through data and benchmarks

By creating a data-driven culture with business intelligence for all, you can enable everyone at every level of your organisation to make confident decisions to drive better business results. We offer:

  • Audits and assessments
  • Benchmarking
  • Introduction of new data processes and tools
  • Access to our Verdane portal of best practice, templates and more

Learn from Northern Europe’s best and brightest

The size of our company portfolio means that whilst our businesses will all face similar growth challenges, they do so from differing levels of maturity and organisational size. This creates a natural collective learning ecosystem, and as a Verdane company you will be offered:

  • CXO events, with structured and informal networking
  • Co-mentoring through a CXO Buddy System
  • Digital learning sessions open to portfolio company employees
