In addition, this year he has also made highly profitable divestments. 


Divestments in the last 2 years

Inveready that invests in grassroots companies technology with high growth potential and innovative business models, has carried out major exit transactions in the last 2 years, successfully developing newly created companies and selling them, many of them to international funds.
