Preon Capital Partners is the family office of Jari Ovaskainen, a successful Finnish entrepreneur. Ovaskainen sold his first company to Telefonica for €230M – which also might have played a role in acquiring a stake in Augustus Capital. In 2014, Ovaskainen invested in Advanced Accelerator Applications, which was acquired by Novartis in 2017 for €3.9B. Preon Capital Partners is also acting as an asset management firm with several active funds, amongst others investing in venture capital and stocks. By the investment in Augustus, Preon fuels its growth and secures access to new talents and strategic opportunities.
