September 2021

Dear BaltCap partners
Welcome to BaltCap September newsletter! 

We are happy to share the highlights of our extremely hot and busy summer. Active pipeline, new (add-on) investments and strategic partnerships, bold developments and business innovations in portfolio guided the recent months. 
At the same time, mature BaltCap funds continue the exit route. In less than six months we exited six companies. Harvesting the portfolio is a rewarding period – we are proud to have been a part of numerous remarkable growth stories. This well reminds us why building local companies into business champions with an international reach is our passion. It also reminds us of the crucial role of our management teams, partners and advisors. Many-many thanks to all of you!
