BGF, the UK’s most active investor in growing businesses, has invested £11.6m in Invenio, a Reading-headquartered and global provider of business focussed technology solutions and consulting services, to support the business’s continued growth.
Founded in 2006, Invenio provides consulting services and technology solutions for organisations in the media, manufacturing & logistics, and public sector verticals.
Invenio delivers successful transformational projects and business critical technology solutions with exceptional customer focus, deep industry expertise and a transparent approach.
Invenio has over 750 employees working for customers worldwide with delivery centres across seven countries – UK, India, Mauritius, Saudi Arabia, Fiji, USA and UAE – and has a strong track record with global partners and clients. SAP, the world’s largest enterprise software vendor, named Invenio as one of its leading partners globally for tax and revenue management and the media industry. Invenio’s customers include Universal Music Group, Kuehne & Nagel, the BBC and the Fijian and Saudi Tax authorities.
The investment from BGF will help the business scale by expanding its offering, improving its services and growing through acquisition.
Arun Bala, CEO of Invenio, said: “Invenio was set up on the core values of exceptional customer focus, deep industry and technology expertise, transparency and employee care. Our core values, a unique culture and a highly valued customer engagement model have helped us grow over the last thirteen years and maintain deep relationships with our clients.
“We are delighted to have BGF on board for the next stage of our journey and are looking forward to making the most of the team’s expertise in this space. BGF’s investment will help us continue to invest and grow to meet demand, whilst keeping control of our business and staying true to our values.”
