Our experience shows us that companies tend to act "too little & too late" when facing crisis symptoms. The digital and sustainable transformations are impacting all businesses and responding too late and too little to those new challenges can endanger the profitability and liquidity of companies until a point of no return.
At RSQ, we help businesses to react on time and with enough effort to those challenges. For this, RSQ has built an integrated offering for helping companies adapt and take advantage of these changes to create sustainable long-term value.
We are entrepreneurs and we commit both our time and money to the companies we are investing in.
RSQ Investors focuses on investing in companies with restructuring potential. We use a realistic and no-nonsense approach.
Our Core RSQ Team is involved in the value creation process through operational and strategic support by taking an active supervising role as a member of the board.
Our Quanteus Group People are expert professionals that will provide hands-on support on an ad-hoc basis to realize the value potential.
Our QuantIM network of independent experts and our TMO's with in-depth experience in transformation and management, bring the CXO expertise necessary in the transition period to enhance the value creation process.
Our Investors Network provides the funds for the endeavor when necessary.
