The foundation of Esmaeilzadeh Holding AB (EHAB) is family.
This means that at the same time as being committed to generating returns, we have never forgotten the deeper ties of respect and trust that govern family relationships and which must also lie at the heart of any successful business.
Brother and sister Dr. Saeid and Dr. Mouna Esmaeilzadeh have set up over 30 companies over the last 20 years. Our business philosophy is to utilize the rigors and disciplines of our scientific training to identify, develop and commercialize niche companies.
These family ties are particularly strong for us. We left Iran in 1982 to escape oppression, and after a perilous journey eventually arrived in Sweden in the winter of 1983. While we were delighted to be in a safe country, we grew up in a troubled suburb of Stockholm, with limited life choices. Education was our pathway to eventual success.
Dr. Saeid is a PhD in Inorganic Chemistry and Dr. Mouna a medical doctor and neuroscientist.
This blend of academia and entrepreneurial drive has generated consistent strong returns of around 80 per cent year-on-year growth in sectors ranging from MedTech, BioTech, infrastructure, animal health and material science.
