Our Strategy

Driven by Darko Horvat's strong belief in the importance of human capital, THFAO mostly engages with individuals and companies who exhibit some specific traits that we find important: typically equity investment of min $5 million (with co-investment opportunities starting at $1 million).


We look for strong positioning within attractive industry segments with clear future opportunities, low-risk profiles and compelling growth potential, healthy and sustainable profit margins and robust cash flow, and a solid, defencible market presence. We have a strong preference for skilled and seasoned founders and management teams with whom we can proactively collaborate.


We specialise in investments across several industry segments, including technology – specifically AI, Industry 4.0 and special situations investment.


At THFAO, our pursuit is not merely financial; it's a journey toward building enduring partnerships, fostering innovation, and cultivating sustainable growth in transformative enterprises.
