Our Story

Zabolis Partners is a private equity firm specializing in real estate, sustainable energy, e-commerce and financial technology sectors that always starts from a blank page.

THREE CORE PRINCIPLES

SCALE

We focus to bring scale. This is why our endeavors are to a major extent partnerships. Scale opens completely new possibilities and brings sustainability and a different level of returns.

TRANSFORMING INDUSTRIES

We target the industries undergoing radical shifts brought by new technologies. These are the industries ripe with the most opportunities.

HANDS-ON

We are hands-on in the management of our ventures. We don’t get involved in industries we don’t want to understand, and we dedicate at least one of our partners to oversee each venture.
