Context

Founded in 1998, Picturae has developed an expertise in the digitization, management, and storage of cultural heritage and natural history and historical materials.

The social impact of digitization and the creation of access to cultural heritage, natural history, and historical materials is huge. It opens doors to the world of education, research, and science; bringing history back from archive vaults, taking it directly to home computers and classrooms. This process makes historical materials accessible and preserves it for future generations.

As part of its growth strategy, Picturae’s management realized that the company had reached a point where it was time to take the next step in its service journey and find a financial partner to increase their speed in seizing more international market share.

The company serves an impressive list of high-profile national and international clients, including the Municipal Archives of Amsterdam, MoMa, UNESCO, the Smithsonian Institution, The Frick Collection, and the Van Gogh Museum.
