We support ambitious entrepreneurial projects and we can intervene at different phases of the company's development/maturity: secondary financing for founding teams, growth acceleration or external growth financing, primary or secondary LBO/OBO. Otium Growth's preferred sectors are consumer services in retail (healthcare, education, lifestyle) and digital (tourism, ticketing, video games, fintech/assurtech, etc.), e-commerce, and certain B2B services (media, marketing, HR, consulting). Otium Growth invests directly from €5m to €35m and can also co-invest in larger deals.

Otium Capital is a historical and key player in French venture capital, with notable successes such as La Fourchette, Payfit, Owkin and Amenitiz. Otium's investments in Venture Tech are now made through its investment vehicle Resonance, founded by Alban Oudin and Maxime Le Dantec. Our DNA as entrepreneurs serving entrepreneurs is what sets us apart. We invest in start-ups, from Seed to Series A, for amounts between €500k and €10m.
Otium Capital's ambition is to become the leader in french industrial Venture Capital. We invest in companies combining high efficiency gains with a positive impact. We want to leverage our experience gained from more than ten years of investing in disruptive innovation to identify and support the industrial champions of tomorrow. We look with great interest at scalable and innovative projects, and we are also likely to invest in industrial projects of carve-out or consolidation.
Otium Leisure's ambition is to become the leading operator of local leisure brands over the next 10 years. To achieve this, the group is acquiring and developing brands in the most promising segments (Family Entertainment Centers, kids parks, action games, virtual reality, social and cultural leisure, etc.) Otium Leisure supports them with a very strong development plan using its resources, both operational and financial. We are constantly listening to market developments and are particularly interested in early stage involvement.
We believe that Real Estate and hospitality offer investment opportunities with high returns, especially since new consumption habits have shaken these sectors. We have identified two main verticals: hotels in outlying areas in need of rehabilitation, and companies redefining hospitality and property management. We are willing to invest tickets ranging from €1m to €20m.
Since its creation, Otium Capital has invested in private or public companies and in investment vehicles. In addition, our investments range from Seed to Series C and later stages in various sectors (consumer, healthcare, Food & Beverage, retail, energy, etc.)
This is why, we will still consider investments that do not fit into our investment thesis if they meet three key criteria: the potential for strong growth, a top-notch team and a category-defining company. Furthermore, we always look for a deal structure creating alignment between us and the team, whether by taking a minority or a majority stake.
