Our promise

More than investors, we are partners

Sodexo Ventures is not focused on exit strategies. We are focused on ensuring mutual benefits. For this reason, our investments are systematically tied to partnership agreements. We are eager to build long-lasting relationships that leverage our extensive experience, international footprint, 425,000 employees and 100 million consumers.

Investment Principles

Safeguarding the independence of start-ups

Sodexo Ventures only engages in minority investments to preserve start-up agility. We do not ask for exclusivity or voting rights. We simply support growth: start-ups are free to work with relevant clients and a dedicated business partner is appointed for each investment to advise and share expertise as often as needed.
