We are...

15 very different people with the same goal: we all want to achieve a lot together with our portfolio companies. In total, we look back on 30 years of experience in the private equity and venture capital landscape and know the ups and downs of “being an entrepreneur”. At the same time, the development of our start-ups gives us good access to knowledge about new technologies, digitalisation, AI, etc. and we are supported by a broad network of industry experts, business angels & consultants who are well known to us.

We see ourselves as partners of our portfolio companies, whose management should always be in control. Our team is full of different personalities, just as every management team and every company is different.
