Parabellum Investments


We have a strong track record in growing companies which offer technology-based solutions for international corporate clients. We don't just look for a valuation, but whether a clear and realistic growth plan can be implemented - in a sector we understand already or are interested in.

Our approach is intentionally opportunistic - we are always open to new opportunities, including businesses more aligned to our personal interests.
