A hybrid model

ENTREPRENEUR INVESTOR INSPIRED BY BRUNO ROUSSET.
Evolem is a family office founded by an entrepreneur for entrepreneurs. We combine an entrepreneurial vision and our experience in offering long-term support with financial tools and profit-sharing mechanisms for the benefit of the performance of the company’s workforce.

Our approach is not solely a financial one.

Above all else, it is a human one. First and foremost, we give priority to the quality and continuity of our relations over time and foster the ambition to go further together. We look to create a genuine common destiny with the project managers we support, based on joint commitments: achieving projects through trust and exacting standards, reciprocal care and perspicuity in all situations. We help our companies set a course for strong, sustainable results, by making sure social and societal issues as well as environmental protection are taken into account, to drive true, sustainable value creation.
