Paradigm Investments is focused on investments in small and mid-size companies operating in Russia or other CIS countries with annual sales in the range of $20-$100 million. In general we seek to acquire significant minority stakes but in some cases we can make control investments. In any case we should be able to influence strategic and key operational decisions of our portfolio companies.
We invest in broad range of industries but the consumer sector remains our main focus. Our team's many years of investing in and operating consumer businesses helped us to develop deep expertise in the sector and make us a prospective investment partner able to add significant value to the operating side of a portfolio company.
Our investment horizon is up to 5-7 years and our exit can be made through selling to a strategic investor or other shareholders, or through a public offering.
