We help to grow companies using our experience as founders, entrepreneurs, investors, consultants, and advisors.
Before investing we use a scrupulous selection framework to make sure the team is strong, the business model sound and we are able to contribute.
By applying effective portfolio management routines and knowledge sharing platform we aim to strengthen startups in their journey to success.
Our main focus is on projects originated in Poland, Ukraine and opportunistically in other countries, having their core market in Poland or Ukraine.
Our investment ticket ranges between PLN 0.5 to 2MM and we focus on early and seed-stage projects which have initially proven their business idea by attracting first clients.
We don’t say no to co-investments, yet we would only consider such an investment if the long-term interests of all parties can be aligned.
Among others we prefer the following categories of target companies:
- performance management,
- engagement management,
- learning experience platforms,
- time & attendance management,
- benefit platforms,
- wellbeing management,
- suites for remote workforce,
- HCM suites,
- robotic process automation (HR-related chatbots),
- candidates sourcing solutions with special focus on IT and Blue Collar,
- job matching tools,
- candidate Management systems (CRM),
- candidate assessment tools
How we work?
Leverage industry know-how
We leverage Grupa Pracuj know-how and experience to select types of projects with the biggest chances of success. Working with over 40.000 businesses every year, we have a deep understanding of HR market and constantly monitor how it can change in the longer term and what solutions have a bigger chance of solving existing and upcoming problems, as well as replacing the ones currently used.
In addition, we take advantage of our experience as an investor in HR Tech companies expanding internationally and facilitate knowledge sharing platform between projects to learn best industry practices, understand trends and enable them to scale.
Pracuj Ventures exit strategy
Investment horizon and exits
Pracuj Ventures investment horizon is expected to range between 3-7 years.
Being Corporate Innovation Fund we assume that most promising companies, with strong core products, will complement Grupa Pracuj portfolio and find its exit here.
In other projects, where synergies and fit to Grupa Pracuj is not obvious, we will act as a regular financial investor, helping them to find the most efficient and beneficial exit on the market.
