Ever since our founding in 2002, our main goal at Natland has been to change the world around us for the better through investment. We help companies which are struggling to fulfil their potential on their own, all while bringing new ideas to life and improving the lives of those living in or around the properties we develop. 

We are proud of our flexibility and in being a fair business partner. We are decisive and have a healthy attitude towards risk. We are constantly gaining new experience from all of our projects, which helps us grow as a company.

Our business model is centred on three basic pillars:

/Positive impact: We help a new company turn a brilliant idea or innovation into something that benefits the world . We buy a piece of land and turn it into a beautiful and pleasant place to live. We revive a company that got itself into a difficult situation which helps preserve the jobs of its employees. All in all, we do everything we can to make things better. 

/Expertise: We are not just investors; we are also experts. We have experience, we have know-how, and we know what companies need to stand on their own two feet again. We use a personal approach to investing and we stay involved in the work throughout the process. We are not guided by the numbers alone. We also concern ourselves with the people, develop new ideas, and spark up enthusiasm and a positive atmosphere. With these ingredients combined, we then go and rebuild a profitable company again. 

/Added value: We support projects which are able to add value to their surroundings. We are looking to kick-start positive and systemic changes. A whole community cooperates with us on our projects and they are sustainable. We can offer people a job in which they will be beautifying their run-down surroundings.

Smart investing

“We live during the time of smart phones, smart networks, and smart cities so it only makes sense to have  CleverMaps and CleverFarms in our investment portfolio. Our team of analysts are also quite smart, but that isn’t enough to make success guaranteed. It isn’t only size that makes for a smart investment, but also whether the investor understands exactly what is needed to do and how to reach their goals in a smart way. That’s our speciality.”
