Investing in businesses with potential
Wave invests in SMEs in need of growth capital. The investments in the target market must offer something distinctly different to what is currently available or target unserved sections of the market.
Co-investments will be made alongside Business Angels, Family Offices or Institutional Investors.
We are seeing this ‘dry powder’ money being put to use, as finance and capital is made available for companies with long-term growth potential and quality management.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) help satisfy local demand for services, offer local employment, and provide larger firms with inputs and services. Access to capital is often a major constraint for SMEs; Wave's mission is to fulfil this gap with a focus in Italy.
PMI are mostly diffused in the North West and North East areas of Italy. The region with the highest number of PMI is Lombardy, with the 20% of the manufacturing enterprises, followed by Veneto and Emilia Romagna.
