“Invajo has had an exciting journey to say the least and it is expected to gain new momentum with the launch of a brand new platform Q1 2023. That together with EPTI, Jinderman & Partners and RLM Invest, who all bring a huge know-how and network, gives us the opportunity to continue building Invajo into a leading player in event management, says Christian Ramel, Invajo's CEO
"As a former investor in Invajo since 2017 and CEO in 2021, I have followed the company closely for a long time. I am convinced that the new ownership constellation and the strategy we have jointly agreed on during the last few months' negotiations will give Invajo the best possible conditions to develop successfully and reach profitable growth. We at Jinderman & Partners are excited to continue this journey together with Invajo's management, EPTI and RLM Invest”. Says Love Carlsson, Jinderman & Partners
