Our mission is to invest in companies that are outstanding in their field.

Odyssey 44 is a family office and was founded in 2014 in Prague. It manages the wealth of the Kúšik family. Its founder, Martin Kúšik, has been active in the investment business for almost 20 years as a partner of Penta Investments. The primary objective of Odyssey 44 is to invest into exceptional businesses which consistently create value for their customers and employees. We are convinced that by exceeding their expectations, long term value growth will follow.

Our Investment Profile

We are looking for investments that fulfil the following criteria:

  • Have long term revenue growth potential
  • Have strong committed management that genuinely cares about its customers, employees and is dedicated to developing the business
  • Have a business model which is hardly imitable by competitors (competitive advantage) and is able to further deepen this advantage

We invest into businesses with the intention of holding them forever. We are not focused on any particular industrial sector but want to geographically concentrate on the Czech and Slovak republics. The minimum investment size we will consider is €20 million equity. We do not invest into start-ups.

Value Investing Internship

Why should you join us?

You will gain a real investment experience by combining your academic knowledge with our hands‑on investment practices in family‑office inspired by Value Investing and Warren Buffett himself.
You will get a comprehensive framework of how to identify and find outstanding businesses, help the investment team in daily execution tasks, and build your knowledge of best value investing know-how out there.
Remuneration covering your costs.
