MCI Newsletter #3/18
  Time flies… and it’s not only the passing summer that treated us so kindly this year in Poland, but also MCI itself. It will soon be 20 years that we have been following a digital investment path. Lots has changed since, and so has our company. We are increasingly shifting attention towards buyout/private equity, yet we want to remain flexible and agile, thanks to our growth backbone. Record exits reported this year and very solid portfolio performance are confirmation of the team's skills in digital private equity.

For some time, we have been considering creating a closed-end Fund that will allow us to use our buyout experience gained from MCI.EuroVentures. The strategy of the New Fund will be similar – we will focus on digital transformation in CEE. Obtaining a first-class advisor (placement agent), which confirms our expertise in the region with their engagement and supports us with the fundraising process, was crucial for this project.
