Capital is the fuel of every company. Whether you want to launch a revolutionary new product, expand your existing business or acquire a competitor, as an entrepreneur you need capital to fund these plans. You also need working capital to run the business, and you will want to keep some reserves for unexpected setbacks.
As an independent private equity investor, we provide risk capital to entrepreneurs in order to finance growth. Risk capital – also known as venture capital – is equity capital contributed by the owners of the company in exchange for shares or (in combination with) a subordinated loan. This capital is risk bearing because the providers receive no securities in return and are therefore fully exposed to potential continuity risks. As a reward for providing this equity capital, the shareholders are entitled to the profits the company generates as well as increases in share value.
Therefore, if we decide to invest in your company, both you as the entrepreneur and we as shareholder are fully committed to growing the company. As an enterprising investor, our approach thus goes far beyond just providing risk capital. More information on this topic is available under Our approach.
