Onze kernwaarden zijn Ondernemerschap, Samenwerken, Duurzaamheid en Plezier.
Bouvy de Brie Capital is opgericht door Paul de Brie en Arthur Bouvy. Wij hebben beiden onze sporen verdiend in het financieren, leiden én transformeren van ondernemingen, zowel als directeur en toezichthouder. Onze kracht ligt in onze kennis, kunde en netwerken.
Wij zijn vooral deskundig in het transformeren, financieren en herkapitaliseren van ondernemingen in de breedste zin van het woord vanuit een gezonde kritische houding over de prestaties van ondernemingen. Hierbij kijken wij zowel naar de sector, onderneming, en ondernemer als naar de financiële criteria zoals liquiditeit, solvabiliteit en toegevoegde waarde. Al deze factoren moeten goed zijn, of potentie hebben.
