about us

Bookmakers Investments is a Dutch investment company that distinguishes itself from the market by always doing more than is asked.

We focus on companies with growth potential that we can help with financial support, but also with our knowledge, experience and broad network. In other words, we help companies we believe in. From startups to scale ups to medium size companies to mature enterprises.

We believe in partnerships. Because together we are stronger.

That’s why we believe in the added value of personal contact, in thinking along and in supporting processes. As we already do or have done with respected companies such as Danerolles, CRAVT, Just Design, Gems and Allsetra. Bookmakers Investments invests in companies with ambition and growth potential. That’s what suits us.

These days he drives long distance races on behalf of Racing Team Nederland. Besides being a top sportsman, Giedo is also successful in the business field, especially in real estate. For example, with CRAVT he is active in the High End segment. Giedo always says that business is top sport on its own level, which made the transition from racing to deal making fluently. Apart from this, he gathered an impressive network with both athletes and businessmen.

Sep Talei

Sep Talei was born in Iran but raised in the Netherlands. He studied economics and political science in Amsterdam. As a teenager he had already set up several businesses.

At Bookmaker Investments we benefit daily from his knowledge and experience in this field. His (business) interests lie in the areas of research and strategy, but he also enjoys sports, reading, social interaction and acquiring knowledge from the talented people he meets.
