INVESTING IN A MORE ADVANCED FUTURE

Take a look at eMan Innovations – a Czech technology venture capital fund that focuses on domestic and international technology projects with global potential.

About us

eMan Innovations Focus

eMan Innovations focuses its investments on companies and projects in the field of information technology, as well as in businesses that will undergo strong technological transformation and innovation in the coming years. This allows us to create a relatively broad portfolio while applying eMan’s extensive technological know-how.

What the eMan Innovations Fund offers

We invest in companies and projects that come up with new ideas in information technology, as well as in areas that will inevitably undergo technological transition and innovation in the future. Thanks to this focus, we are able to create and support a very diverse mix of activities, and connect them with eMan’s technological experience and know-how. Though we are interested in smart and novel ideas, above all, we care about the people behind them and their human and entrepreneurial stories. As Czechs, we have mainly Czech and Slovak companies in our sights – we wish to develop the potential of our region, that clever and skilled people stay with us and invest their profits back into development. Among other things, we help “our” projects prepare for future stock market entry. We truly live with these companies and their ideas – we follow them closely and support them at every stage of the project. We strive to connect the individual companies under our umbrella, to find ways they can be mutually beneficial, to complement each other, and to come up with ideas they might not be able to implement on their own.

OUR VALUES

“We do what we like to do. With those we like.”

Why eman innovations

Potential

Technology propels today’s world. Digitalization, the cloud, big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, cybersecurity. We encounter these concepts every day, areas that will grow in importance every day, month, and year – but not only as concepts. On the contrary, the world of technology is penetrating, and will continue to penetrate, a long line of other – say, traditional – fields. After all, this is why we are building a diverse portfolio of companies in our investment fund, whose ideas and activities we will support and develop, but also interconnect: construction, lighting, security, manufacturing support, education, and health care. The potential of modern technology is enormous.

Knowledge

With the merger of the technology company eMan and the financial management company IPR CARE, a fund with unique know-how was created. The combination of the founders’ large-scale expertise sets us apart from other technology private equity funds.

Transparency

Individual companies in the eMan Innovations fund are subject to audit. The ongoing value of the portfolio is determined on an annual basis, based on independent expert valuations. The fund either participates directly in project management or monitors them through supervisory authorities.
