Multi-disciplinary team and resources
Lumaux will support high potential businesses with a multi-disciplinary team and resources. The team believes that in the current investment environment there is room for a dedicated, resourceful and supportive investment fund. Its fund managers have gained extensive experience in strategic, technical, financial and legal matters, and aim to actively support all aspects of the businesses of portfolio companies. Hence Lumaux does not merely provide financial support, but aims to be a valuable partner for management.

Lars Krieckaert, fund manager at Lumaux: “We are very proud to launch our new fund and we are eager to provide our support to accelerate growth in all aspects of the company. We believe the diversification of our team and experience as entrepreneurs will allow us to better support management of portfolio companies and accelerate growth and value.”

Growing markets
The markets that Lumaux targets – robotics, energy transition, and mobility – have already shown tremendous growth in recent history, and are expected to expand even further.

Edwin Rammeloo, fund manager at Lumaux: “We see a lot of opportunities for companies active in the targeted markets. These companies have great momentum, providing solutions for every day challenges and urgent matters like labor shortage, rising (production) costs and climate change. Companies providing solutions to these problems, will be able to quickly scale the sale of its products and services.”
