Supporting Entrepreneurs

For over 25 years, the ARTS ET BIENS holding company has been investing in privately held companies, engaging in direct transactions, and subscribing to entrepreneurial funds.

Our business involves providing equity capital through capital increases, leveraged buyouts (LBOs), and/or turnarounds for SMEs with annual revenues ranging from 5 to 100 million euros, led by ambitious entrepreneurs.

In parallel, we invest over 30 million euros annually in LBO funds in Europe and the USA established by entrepreneurs, always specializing sectorally.

The synergies between these two activities are numerous and extremely beneficial.

Our network of funds and managers in Europe and the US allows us to identify growing market segments, success stories, best practices, sound business models, and competitive advantages. This network also enables us to quickly connect our managers with the right contacts in around ten countries in Europe and the US, thus accelerating international development.

In agreement with management, we standardize certain practices for direct transactions:

“Thanks to our entrepreneurial culture and experience in turnaround, our decision-making processes are fast and responsive, while respecting the long-term vision and human project of the company.”
