Europlaw Group Fund has implemented strategies for early-stage investing, and how those strategies can translate into a successful launch for budding start up entrepreneurs. Success involves not only a solid, professional team with great innovative ideas, but it also requires the willingness and ability to change and adapt to an ever-changing world. Anyone can identify trends once they have broken, but a successful investor needs to see several steps ahead of the pack with vision, pragmatism and understanding of the landscape. This ability helps Europlaw Group Fund knows where to focus their attention and, eventually, how to weed out the snake oil from the true value pitches. For us, that means looking at emerging behavioural trends and shifts in culture. What we’re looking to understand is where people and companies are going to spend their time and money – not only today, but into the future. So, we conduct research with strictest due diligence to ascertain if there are all the supporting factors for projects being successful with due cost to profit ratios for longevity and sustainability.
We do not make ill informed, undisciplined, one-off small unsustainable investments, but rather we provide long-term growth support, mentorship and where needed on past performance we follow on with additional investment as required. In addition, we not only invest, but we also multiply the huge assets of our different service providers to grow the business, to provide necessary support and finances as well. Both Europlaw Group SJ Asset Management Limited, registered in Ireland and Europlaw Group (UK) Limited, registered in England and Wales, will jointly serve as one of the service provider to allocate assets for the beneficiary of The Europlaw Group Fund. We are looking into joint development emanating from South Africa to sub-Sahara African markets, and that is the Africa vision we have for the future of our continent. As a venture and capital fund and as entrepreneurs, we are looking forward to working with African entrepreneurs to create that opportunity, then, together for the present and far into the future, creating sustainability, education and transference of our professional skills and mindsets as a team together.
