When I was searching for investment, I knew I wanted a firm that did more than only bringing money in. Because of that, I was precise when I chose who would be my partner. EB Capital assisted with the company management, the strategic vision, and brought in professionals that complemented our team. That was exactly what I was looking for.
Several reasons led us to close the deal with EB Capital. One of them was that, like us, its founders are enthusiastic about new technologies. Another was their experience in the distribution industry, which is our industry. After investment, we acquired the operations of other companies and were able to grow substantially.
Wine's investment is currently managed by EB Capital's retail and e-commerce team. However, Wine's longstanding relationship to EB Capital's investors goes back to 2012, since an investment made by Grupo RBS's shareholders (among others). I clearly remember the joy of sharing these news with the collaborators.
