How we work
In our 20-year history, we have learnt what projects are right for Miton. We know what ideas will best utilise the collective experience and extensive contacts of our team, and where there is the greatest chance of future success. These essentials are found in innovative digital B2C companies that help to improve people’s lives.
We establish these companies in collaboration with their talented founders or join them in the early phase of development. We then actively guide the companies through a three-phase life cycle:
- Test the original concept
- Accelerate growth in the domestic market
- Expand into international markets
We bring ‘smart money’ and a dedicated business partner to every company with which we work. Partners are highly experienced in the given business sector and provide valuable advice on key strategic decisions. All of this happens with the complete support of the collective Miton team.
Whether through dinners, social get-togethers or specialised workshops, our companies are actively interconnected to share inspiration and know-how. We strive to help our companies find the shortest path to success.
