Korys is the investment structure of the Colruyt family. Next to holding a significant stake in the Colruyt Group, Korys participates in a host of investments and projects consistent with its values and its mission. We invest in sectors that fit our three P approach to sustainability, and in which we have significant expertise as a team. Our investments are structured along three strategic lines: Direct investments, Fund investments and Liquid investments.
Korys Direct Investments provides growth financing to small and medium-sized companies in the early commercialization to expansion stages. We have been active in the venture capital and private equity space since 2000 (initially under the name StoneFund). While cleantech will remain central in our portfolio, we are currently increasing our exposure to life sciences and consumer goods.
