Trust gives independence to entrepreneurs, though not to the level of irresponsibility. Companies joining the Unity Group are fully audited with full due diligence by outside entities. Velocity means embracing the agile nature of a small business, allowing for fast decision making to occur. This is allowed by the trust placed in a company to make mistakes, because they will happen regardless of speed or discussion undertaken. The value of collaboration reflects the Unity Group’s belief that an era of competition is moving towards an era of collaboration, with Agglomeration being the ultimate form of collaborative IPO for small businesses.

This potential for growth is one of the main reasons that companies want to work with the Unity Group, taking advantage of the better returns on offer to business owners and investors alike. With its impressive plans for expanding its Agglomeration model, the Unity Group intend to complete 15-20 acquisitions every year and are on track to achieve this target in 2020. This should generate close to one billion euros of shareholder value. The challenge of working with smaller businesses will occur in the long term, with the simple matter of aging demographics changing the way a business will be run. Great companies, built up with care and attention, will eventually have founders looking to exit, whilst leaving Unity Group
