Our continued success is a result of staying true to our core business values. Strong fiscal disciplines and attentive focus on details are the foundation in managing the consistent growth in the MICROmega asset portfolio.
Through our years in business, we have learnt many lessons that are now embedded in our DNA:
The difference is in the detail
Each individual’s role plays an important part in our overall success. To this end, we have instilled a culture that ensures all employees pay utmost attention to details within their function and are driven by our overall business purpose. This has allowed us to overcome the growing pains of rapid expansion and provides us with the confidence that our businesses are experiencing sustainable growth.
Remain firm on our goals
and flexible in our approach
Continuous and rapid advancement in technology, throughout the global business landscape, requires agility in order to succeed. While MICROmega remains steadfast on what we aim to achieve, we understand the value of being a flexible, technologically disruptive business.
Different holds value
Different cultures, leadership styles and approaches allow our organisations to leverage diverse skill-sets, adding a vast amount of strength to the intellectual approaches that drive our businesses forward.
It is more valuable to own 100% of a niche market than 1% of a massive market, therefore if everyone else is doing it, we are aware of the need to do it differently or to seek alternative opportunities.
Freedom to create
Always offer opportunity to those that have the courage and ability to seize the opportunities and execute them. This approach has resulted in tremendous growth for both our businesses and our people.
Our intellectual and technological strength, hands-on approach, exceptional leadership, and authentic commitment to improvement and innovation is what differentiates us from other investment companies.
Our enthusiastic team promote creative and original thinking, an unmatched work ethic and a balanced lifestyle, which permeates throughout our entire organisation. Our leadership team are hungry overachievers with a deep-rooted need to create true value where others struggle.
