Equitin’s Founders have many years of experience in Poland and CEE and have been involved in more than 30 investments, including:
“Medicover was Oresa’s first investment in Poland in 1995 – and has turned out very well. Since Oresa invested, Medicover has grown from one clinic in Warsaw to more than hundred clinics employing more than 14,000 people in 14 countries”, says Fredrik Ragmark, Medicover’s CEO.

|Lab tests/year||< 5,000||94 mio|
“Dynamic companies often need more assistance and guidance than capital by itself. When Oresa acquired Librus from the previous owners, I was somewhat concerned about Oresa and its team’s impact on the company. It turned out that I gained some very valuable partners in Piotr and Erik. Not only did they represent the owners, but they have been great partners and advisors to myself and the management team. They helped us transform Librus into a real market leader in the Polish educational system”, says Marcin Kempka, CEO of Librus.

“The Oresa team in Poland supported me in developing Trinity Corporate Services to a market leader in CEE. After 7 years of hard work together, we achieved a successful exit to one of the world’s leading players in this sector”, says Tom Ravensdale, founder and former CEO of Trinity Corporate Services.
Today, Tom is a member of our Advisory Committee.
