Growth as the primary driver of value creation

Double-digit revenue growth constitutes the primary driver of value creation for our investments. In addition, portfolio companies customarily explore add-on acquisitions to drive international expansion or product line extensions, and we play an active role in the evaluation of such opportunities.

Experience and network

As an experienced team with complementary skills, knowledge and trusted relationships, we are keen to serve as sparring partner for accelerated growth strategies and facilitate senior contacts across corporate Germany.

Committed to Germany with a global perspective

We are developing next generations of successful Mittelstand companies, positioned to compete globally. We believe in technology-driven innovation, enabled primarily by software and data analytics. While the majority of our investments are headquartered in Germany, we are open to international involvements.
