Why the people behind the numbers are more important

Daniel Hansen discusses the importance of the entrepreneurial spirit behind the companies OMNIA invests in. I really do believe that doing business successfully comes down to one thing – and I’m not talking about money. It’s all about people, how they lead and the relationships they build. Over the years I’ve come to the conclusion that the driving force behind any successful business is the people in it, rather than…

Go your own way – why OMNIA Private Equity is the right partner for entrepreneurs

‘Synergy’ is a tired word. Today, it’s sorely over-used in business, and has become almost meaningless in many of the contexts in which it is used. Which is a shame, because at heart, it actually perfectly describes a truth that I believe is one of the most important aspects of doing business – that sometimes, by working together, we can be a lot more than just the sum of our…

Many prospective investors – particularly younger ones, including so-called ‘millennials’ – are keen to understand more about how their money…

Straight talking networking for success

I’ll admit it: I only know one way to do business – to take the personal approach. I’ve always talked about how I think the only way to be truly successful is to deal with people, not companies, and that still stands. It’s a way of working that has led me into a huge number of fascinating business relationships – some fruitful, some not so, but all have been a…

OMNIA Global’s Partner Programme

There are a couple of things that really drive me – the urge to be creative and to develop, and also the desire to do this with other people. That ongoing search for collaboration and innovation is something very human I think – but at the same time it’s not just about finding people who think the same as I do. Rather, it’s all about finding those synergies, those magical…
