– We invest in an interesting, very well-prospering company with an established position on the Polish market and a huge development potential on foreign markets. As an IT company, Globema specializes in a niche, but very promising area of geospatial solutions. It is estimated that approximately 80% of all data collected today contains geospatial data and they are a key element in the majority of technological services. The leading position of Globema in Poland as well as a high share of export in the total revenue are a great foundation for further dynamic expansion. Globema has a qualified team that develops new tools to expand the product offer. Own company products are an important pillar for the growth scale, says Marcin Konarski, Avallon’s Partner responsible for the transaction.
