ERMAK is a conduit for supporting development of young companies, predominantly across technology and creative sectors.


ERMAK believes in power of partnerships and conducts investment activities either directly or in collaboration with its associated investment vehicles:

Concentric – regulated investment partnership predominantly focused on early stage European digital technology businesses;

Supremum Capital – a hands-on investment office building innovative enterprises with a key focus on Russia and CIS.

ERMAK’s direct investment activities focus on a wider range of direct and fund investments with a focus on diversification and wealth preservation.

In addition to its investment activities ERMAK supports a number of enterprises that perform an important social or creative function as part of their mandate.



Investment Mandate

ERMAK has a diversified sector focus with core areas of expertise in new economy sectors: digital and resource efficiency with ventures that are aiming to augment and automate traditional economy sectors.

Within those sectors we aim to identify highly relevant, distinct and defensible business models led by committed and agile entrepreneurs.

ERMAK prefers companies at an early stage of their development that we call ‘post-product’ where a company can demonstrate a viable ‘live’ product or service that is attracting early customers. Sadly we don’t have bandwidth to support seed stage businesses and have partnered with Seedcamp and EF for such investments.

We generally avoid ‘me-too’ investment propositions, businesses operating in saturated markets without a clear competitive advantage, or ideas that are not solving a substantial and clearly identifiable customer issue.

To supplement the venture investment strategy ERMAK selectively invests into property, alternative credit and similar products for wealth preservation purposes.


Partnership with Entrepreneurs

ERMAK prefers to act as an active lead investor.

That said our team and investment partners have a wealth of experience across the sectors we are active in. We deploy this experience and our network in helping companies grow.

On the flip side we expect frequent communication and openness from entrepreneurs we back. We prefer to spend our waking hours working with people we like and trust.

ERMAK aims to be a partner, both to our investment associates and entrepreneurs.


Social and Creative Activities

ERMAK’s aim is to support a number of creative and social ventures. Creatively, we aim to foster immersive experiences via architecture, product design, co-creative events and performance arts.

Separately, we support a number of projects that have a strong social function. As ERMAK Group grows the number and breadth of such projects will increase.
