Our Values

We Invest in People

We are proud of our long history and steadfast commitment to the organic promotion of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. DE&I has been at the forefront of ACON’s ESG efforts and is represented by the diversity of its employees, partnership and leadership. As of Q2 2022, 70% of current ACON US senior management (ex founders), 68% of all ACON US employees, 45% of senior management of ACON portfolio companies identify as members of an ethnic minority or as female.

We believe that human capital is our most valuable asset and we invest in the people who drive our business, who lead our portfolio companies and who are touched by our products and services.
