About us

We are an international investment group that manages a diverse portfolio of innovative companies and projects. Our core business is real estate development and manufacturing complemented by information technology, law and insolvency, hospitality business, food supplement development and development and production of sustainable materials (mycelium).

We operate in the Czech Republic, but also throughout Central Europe. We are planning further organic growth by acquiring companies that synergically complete Progresus portfolio. We are expanding into Western European markets.

„Together we are stronger!“ 
 Lukáš Zrůst, Co-Founder Progresus Invest Holding 

It is our mission to evolve the business potential of our companies and projects in which we invest, to increase their competitive ability and value. Projects that we choose relate to quality, life values and legacy for future generations.

Investment Strategy

For us, business is the way to create value for ourselves, our investors and clients, as well as for our employees, business partners and the communities in which we operate.

Our financial group is built on solid foundations. We build on our experienced team and its knowledge, thorough analysis, strategic and operational management skills, and a professional and solid financial background. We systematically reinvest available funds in our companies, and in doing so, we support their further growth and increase their competitiveness.

„How can we look for groundbreaking answers that will have a big impact on our future if we don’t ask brave and honest questions? Every great idea, vision or exceptional change was invented by a brave and honest question. Despite the answers being not easy to find, you have us, so together we have the determination to solve them.“
 Lukáš Foral, Co-Founder Progresus Invest Holding 

By acquiring traditional large companies, we have proven that we can creatively develop their potential and open doors to new business opportunities. At the same time, we support the growth of start-ups. For example, in the Harmonelo company, turnover grew fivefold from CZK 50 million in the first year to CZK 250 million CZK in the second year of its existence. 

We support the Green Deal for Europe and all investments must be in line with our comprehensive ESG strategy.

Our logistics halls target the highest standards of modern sustainable construction according to the criteria of the international BREEAM certification as well as the requirements for economic efficiency.

The location of logistics halls is the most important aspect for tenants. Our halls are therefore built in strategic locations.

    •  good transport accessibility
    •  strategic location in relation to trade with neighbouring countries
    •  available workforce

By investing in industrial parks, we support the economic strength of the regions and create new jobs in the locations. .

Wooden buildings for a CO2 neutral future.

ESG SOLUTIONS NOT ONLY FOR DEVELOPERS

Prefabricated wooden houses of RD Rýmařov, Central European leaders and leaders of our portfolio, are a quality solution for healthy living not only for families, but also an ESG solution for developers, construction companies or cities.

They excel in speed of construction thanks to their modularity and also in energy saving.

They are an (r)evolutionary ESG solution.

Our ESG

We invest with respect for nature and society.
We invest with a higher purpose.

„Our commitment is to be a trusted and responsible partner with a positive impact on the environment and our society.
We will continue with our effort to reduce the carbon footprint and improve people’s lives in the context of the principles of sustainable development.“

 Lukáš Zrůst a Lukáš Foral, Founders 

We operate in accordance with a comprehensive corporate ESG strategy. For us, sustainability means respect.

We invest in a CO2 neutral future
(Environmental)

We prepare environmentally friendly and economically affordable housing in wooden buildings from our RD Rýmařov factory. Wood is a sustainable building material that effectively binds CO2 (up to one tonne of CO2 in 1 m³). At the same time, we are dedicated to the development and production of other sustainable materials such as mushroom mycelium.

Protection of the environment is a commitment for us, that’s why we support sustainable forest management, planting of new trees and care for the natural wealth of the forests in the Jeseniky mountains. Our development projects are aiming for the international environmental certification BREEAM.

Our goal is to achieve climate neutrality, and we are already taking the first steps.

We create value for society
(Social)

We are a socially responsible partner. We support projects especially in the areas of Czech culture, education and sports. Through our foundation Progresus SPOLU, we provide financial support to talents and children from socially disadvantaged families. We also finance a number of educational and scientific research programs. We support cultural and social activities in the locations where we operate.

We design our development projects so that they become good places to live. They will include elementary and kindergarten schools, parks, orchards and common gardens, sports grounds or community centers. The projects will suitably complement the existing urban units (municipalities, districts).

Every person is unique. We greatly value the diversity of our team and women in leadership positions. We employ in accordance with legal, ethical and professional standards.

We honour a transparent and fair approach (Governance)

We manage the Group responsibly to be a transparent and trustworthy partner for our investors, clients, suppliers, employees and government. We have a corporate Code of ethical conduct and require strict adherence to it.

We promote fair business and have zero-toleration to corruption. We support work-life balance. We invest in the professional development and training of our employees. We encourage their environmentally friendly behaviour and participance in charitable activities.

 

Our support

We create value for society

“Good scenarios shouldn’t stay on paper.”

That’s our commitment. To us, a good scenario is any strong idea, a great thought that has potential or a project that benefits society. But a good scenario is also an exceptional talent that deserves our attention.

 Progresus wants to be a socially responsible partner that helps bring these good scenarios to life. 

We direct our support to specific projects, especially in the fields of Czech culture, education and sport, but also to talents who, for financial reasons, can’t afford to develop their talents to the full. We provide financial support to talented children from socially disadvantaged families through our Progresus SPOLU foundation.

 But our fulfilled scenarios don’t end there…

What scenarios are we fulfilling?

PORG GYMNASIUM

We believe that a quality education is the most valuable thing we can offer children. That’s why, together with entrepreneur and philanthropist Martin Roman, we are launching social scholarships for studying at PORG, an elite Prague gymnasium (general upper secondary school). We fully cover the tuition fees for children who have excellent academic results but can’t afford to study at PORG due to financial reasons. Because investment in education is worth it…

DOFE

Motivating young people to develop their talents and getting involved in philanthropy make sense to us. That’s why we’ve become a long-term partner of the DofE (The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award) programme, where young people aged 14 to 24 comprehensively develop their skills, both sporting and intellectual, and engage in volunteering activities. We direct our support to socially disadvantaged students so that they can develop their talents to the full. We believe that the DofE programme is a great incentive for young people to continually push themselves further in life and to be able to fulfil their potential.

 

SUPPORTING CHILDREN IN SPORT

Progresus makes the dream life stories of young talents come true. Whether it’s education or sport. Through our foundation, we help children who have a strong sporting talent but can’t develop it for financial reasons pursue their chosen sport to the full to fulfil their sporting dreams.

KARLOVY VARY INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

The world of film and the world of investment have a lot in common. There’s always a creative idea at the beginning that is followed by the threads of a story. If everything goes well, there’s success on the screen on the one hand or the successful realisation of an investment plan on the other. That’s why we’ve become a partner of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival for three years, confirming our commitment to be a long-term partner of Czech culture.

VARIATIONS 2022

The Variations Festival is united by what we share and support in the long term. Be it film, music or talent. This unique cultural event, which took place for the second year under the direction of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and under the baton of the Czech Philharmonic, attracted both music and film enthusiasts to Karlovy Vary and proved that the spa town can live and breathe culture not only during the summer film festival.

CZECH PHILHARMONIC

Czech culture undoubtedly grows out of the music and composers of the calibre of Antonín Dvořák. We are incredibly proud of this cultural tradition and feel honoured to be a long-term partner of the Czech Philharmonic, one of the greatest Czech gems. As part of the Joint Orchestra educational project, we support sixty talented pupils aged 12 to 18 from selected music schools who develop their talents alongside professional musicians from the Czech Philharmonic. The year-long work of the pupils and their professional mentors will culminate in a joint concert on 26 June 2023 in the shrine of music, the Dvořák Hall of Prague’s Rudolfinum.

READING HELPS NATURE

How to motivate young readers while helping nature? The answer is given by the Reading Helps Nature project, in which we participate together with our production plant RD Rýmařov.. For every book from the thematic book collection that children read, we’ll plant two new trees in the Reading Helps forest together with the Trutnov foresters and RD Rýmařov and donate CZK 50 to the chosen charity. We are happy that we can motivate young readers and expand their knowledge about nature while helping nature by returning valuable natural material back to it.

LEONTINKA FOUNDATION

The Leontinka Foundation has long been helping visually impaired people, especially children and young people, to live life to the full. Four-legged friends are the biggest helpers in everyday life for blind people.. We are extremely happy that thanks to our help, which is also addressed to assistance dog training centres, children can find their faithful friend..
