„WE BACK ENTREPRENEURS WITH DARING VISIONS FROM SEED STAGE TO EXIT.”
__ RAINER, HV CAPITAL
We love when new things are being built. New companies, new relations, new perspectives. This is why we like to be amongst the first to join builders in their entrepreneurial journey. And since some endeavors are bigger than others, we are committed to go the long way. With over € 1.7bn under management and about 200 companies backed, HV’s funds have the resources and the experience needed.
Two decades of experience: HV was founded in 2000 as part of Holtzbrinck, one of Europe’s largest publishing groups. This was around the same time some of the earliest German tech startups were created.
An independent investor: In 2010, HV became an independent venture capital firm, backed by top tier institutional investors from all around the world.
A portfolio of champions: By 2014, HV’s funds had invested in leading consumer Internet companies such as Zalando, HelloFresh, Delivery Hero, SumUp and FlixBus.
Over € 1bn under management: In 2018, HV’s funds surpassed € 1bn in assets under management. HV broadened the investment focus, adding companies from areas like B2B, SaaS, Logistics, Healthcare, AI and Blockchain.
Bringing companies to new dimensions: Today, HV’s funds have invested in about 200 companies with € 1.7bn assets under management and counting, backing some of the greatest success stories in recent European business history. As an early supporter of start-ups around the world, HV remains committed to backing the next generation of daring enterpreneurs and thriving companies.
