Top-level executives learn how to finance the further growth of Czech firms

Prague, Czech Republic – The Pedersen & Partners Prague team joined forces with Enterprise Investors, Deloitte, and White & Case to welcome CEOs, decision makers, and investors to an event designed to discuss and debate the financing opportunities for Czech-owned firms. Participants included executives from the Technology, High-tech Equipment Manufacturing, Agriculture, Alternative & Traditional Energy, and Chemical industries. Petra Grabmayer, Partner at Pedersen & Partners moderated the expert panel discussion represented by Martin Vohanka, CEO at Eurowag; Jiri Michal, entrepreneur and former Zentiva CEO, and Martin Strupl, Managing Partner at eD System Group.

At the event, the experts provided a comprehensive overview of their experience in selecting the right Private Equity partner to drive business growth, what to expect from the collaboration, personal observations from operating a firm together with Private Equity partners, etc. Another major topic was IPO, within which the experts discussed preparation and strategy prior to IPO and adjacent processes, the benefits of IPO, and the challenges of IPO processes.

Throughout the event, certain overarching themes permeated all the business processes under discussion: implementing a fundamental management structure which can truly allow for global expansion; strategies for attracting agile, adaptive, diverse, and driven executives; and detailed and customised approaches to matching the company’s requirements to perfect executive candidates, enabling both parties to ensure the fulfilment of the joint growth goals.
